Rescuing soil after years of membrane and stones?

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?

Does everyone agree with Verdun re raised beds? I was going to have raised beds for my fruit (eg raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants, strawberries) - about 8inch high- as I'm on clay. Maybe I should rethink?

I think some time is needed in store picking up each bag, making notes about how heavy it feels, and on to next etc.
