Wild Flowers/veg - how deep/what type?

Hi there,

I am thinking about buying a raised bed, which is only 6 inches deep but almost 2 metres x almost 1 metre in other dimensions .  How deep do you need a bed for wild flowers and veg to grow successfully? and when can I plant the wildflower seeds or do I need to create seedlings? and do you have any other recommendations of what I can grow in it, which creates impact and colour?  Maybe mixed bed?  (I have two 3 year old boys!)  Thanks gang - new to this planting things lark

Xhose - Expandable hose - any good?

Thank you everyone for your advice, I think I shall go for your recommendation Swiss Sue.  Just what I need.  Yes, the Xhose looks very gimmicky and I never thought of it catching plants - good point!

Cheers

Xhose - Expandable hose - any good?

Hi everyone,

Has anyone had the fortune or not to try the apparently amazing expandable Xhose from the US?  I feel a bit disillusioned with the hoses and casings I see at garden centres/on-line, they seem so thin and I can see that they will kink and leave permanent kink dents.  We've already binned one for being so awful.  I have seen mixed reviews for the Xhose on Amazon.  Any advice would be gratefully received.  Also, would welcome any other hose recommendations.

Thanks

KP
