Hmmm, I think my raised beds for fruit and veg may be a sympton of garden design not keeping up with developments since....I planned to do such raised beds one day. In the meantime I started developing the rest of the garden and so far have made three flower beds. Adding manure, using grit when planting, and mulching with bark / chipped hedge trimmings/ local leaves. Achillea and Echinacea are doing just fine. 5 out of 7 of my dahlias survived the winter when I didnt dig them up. So with some improvement my soil is obviously ok. So I why am I still thinking raised beds for fruit?!
Which way are you going 30x7?
