Last time we discussed how to build a raised bed and which height would be best suited for your needs. So this time I would like to make a few suggestions about what to grow in it.
The beauty of having a raised bed is that the soil put into the bed can be better than you may have in your garden, here I am thinking cold wet clay can be changed for a much better open crumb structure.
For more details of the soil to place into the bed, please see here. With a raised bed you do not walk on it and so save soil compaction and the need for digging. If you need to be on top of the raised bed for picking soft fruit for example then I suggest placing a plank across the bed resting on the sides and then use that to get access to the plants.
