what earth for raised beds
finally have a garden, with raised beds as my husband is in a wheelchair and i find bending difficult.
the 2.5 ft tall beds are half filled with the earth (and rubble) that existed before, then quarter of same that was sived to remove large stones and broken glass [house was built on old allotments], top quarter is wickes top soil
BUT, when i water the beds the water sits ontop of the soil creating a mud.
what should i add to the top soil to make good planting soil for my 13 raised beds.
i grow herbs and sented or tactile plants as this is a new disabled accesible garden.
any help appreciated, thank you
