Preparing for next year
Hi folks. New here and to the heady world of growing your own.
As I am too late coming into this this year, although I have enjoyed getting some salad crop and herbs etc, my main priority is to plan how I am going to go about gardening next year.
I want to fill the small area I have with raised beds as my arthritic knees rule out digging. I have included a small, 6x4 greenhouse which I have just completed assembling and I think I will create a gravel floor in there with containers to grow stuff as well as a small staging come potting station.
My main worry is ow to prepare for planting beans etc next year. Can I create something like a trough planter with a frame back to plant beans in or do they need to go into the soil? I am thinking along the design lines of those planters you get with a trellis back for climbers but not as posh.
