Advice on building a raised bed

You would be better off growing in pots than trying to construct a raised bed on paving. You can raise all sorts of veg and fruit in pots but they do need a good compost, feeding and lots of watering. Start of with some mixed salad leaves, spring onions, strawberries, tomatoes and herbs.
