Top soil getting wet
Marrowcourgette Posts: 20
Hi I have about 2 tonnes of top soil in large builders sacks Ive had for about a month it is covered up but it was very wet when I put in bags.I won't to use this for raised beds is it still ok to use as it cost me a lot of money what do you suggest I mix with it to aerate it and dry it out a bit.I also have 2 large bags of Irish peat compost can I incorporate this into it in some way.Thank you in advance for any help.
If you are ready with your raised bed frames then fill them as soon as you can even if it's a bit wet it will soon drain. Mix the compost in well as you do it. Then cover each bed with something like landscape fabric & allow to settle over winter & they will be ready for spring sowing/planting with just a light tickle of the surface.
Don't worry about wet topsoil!!! Just use it normally as and when you're ready.
