Hi Vmbannister

Everyone seems to have lots of advice on raised beds. My sister has 2 raised beds in her allotment and she puts bark chippings between the beds to stop the weeds and make sure it’s not too muddy.  I don’t know what soil she used (that would’ve been useful to know!) but the vegetables have done really well. She’s hugely pleased with them!

I am now looking to raise the beds and would appreciate helpin what to put in them soil wise to get best results.
