Raised Deep Bed Growing

If our allotment site is anything to go by, raised deep beds are very much the ‘in thing’ for growing vegetables.  The rich soil in the bed is  never compacted through trampling and produces a greater harvest  in the area as well as reducing somewhat the need for watering.

The close planting  in raised beds produces a micro-climate in which weed growth is suppressed, another benefit . But is raised bed growing the way to go for you?

I’ve written a couple of articles about raised deep beds, which I hope you will find valuable – if you think I’ve got something wrong or forgotten something please let me know.

The first article – About Raised Deep Beds covers the following:

  • The modern history of raised beds and how they have evolved in the last 40 years
  • Is raised deep bed gardening for you?
  • The advantages and disadvantages of raised bed growing
  • Decorative raised deep beds

The second article – How to Construct a Raised Deep Bed covers the following:

  • What size to make the raised deep beds
  • What size to make the paths between the beds
  • What material options are available for the beds and paths
  • How to actually make the raised deep bed
  • My own feelings about raised deep beds
