I'm after some guidance on a vegetable patch I'm planning.
We recently moved into a house that had a large paly park at the bottom of the garden. This is a barked area measuring approximately 5m x 5m. I've now dismantled the park and am left with the area and thought to use to grow vegetables. I was thinking of constructing 3 raised bed measuring 1m x 3m and 60 cm deep. The current plan is to construct these out of marine ply and clad in something more visually appealling.
Does this sound reasonable?
One final point is that the area is relatively shady - it doesn't get much direct sunlight until the afternnon. From research it looks like as long as I'm selective about what I plant I should be fine but would appreciate opinions from here.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
