Filling raised beds
Hi all, I'm new to the forum so hello everyone! I've just ordered some raised beds (4ft x4ftx 1ft) with a plan of growing a variety of fruit & veg. I'm planning on using the square foot method although when I priced up the cost of filling the beds with the recommended 'mel's mix' it was prohibitively expensive. I'm wondering if anyone has any advice with regards to how to fill the beds (3 of them) cheaply but so that they will be productive?? Any other advice re veg growing in beds will be gratefully recieved!
