WE have a pond that we want to turn into a veg patch. It is built in concrete, about 2m by 3m and 50cm deep.
The plan is to break up and remove the concrete from the bottom but leave the sides intact.
We would then fill the hole with the old vegetation from the pond (it was vey overgrown!), heaps of leaves from the garden, some rotted down leaves we bagged up abouyt 6 years ago, the contents of our 2 compost bins and then top up with some imported topsoil.
Will this work?
Do we need to leave the new 'soil' covered up under black plastic for a year or so before attempting to grow anything?
Am I completely bonkers?
All contributions welcomed!
