Advice on filling new raised veg bed

Posted: 22/03/2016 at 00:37
The whole point of a raised bed is that you never tread on it. Ever. It should be a width that you can stretch from either side to the middle to cultivate and plant out.

This makes it unsuitable for sprouts which like a compacted soil but fine for everything else.

I had an excellent kitchen garden and the first thing the new owners did was put their goats in it!

Any idea what this is?..

Wait and see. Spring will be along anytime soon.

Tetley, what do you mean 'tell the kids not to touch'. Notice? Stand there for days on end warning them?

You do know that legally if you tell anybody about a potential problem, you are entirely liable if they hurt themselves?

You don't have to mention anything in pots as they are moveable, but anything in the ground has to be noted.

Wear long trousers and wear your socks outside. Wear long sleeves. This only applies when you are working in vegetation as ticks like to hitch a lift on passing warm-blooded animals.

Michael, that sounds very complicated. But each to their own.

If the hedge grows too quickly, prune it or trim it. Most of us on this site try to garden without unnecessary chemicals. Am I right?

Do not be tempted to 'tidy' up the magnolia further. They don't react well to pruning.
