Hello. I have a timber decking about 8`x9` and it is against a west facing shed. From April to August it gets sun for about a third of the day. I want to grow vegetables there but don`t really want to remove the decking, so would like to sit raised beds on top of it. My questions are:-
1. Can I put raised timber beds on top of the deck, and if so, what do I use for the bottom of the beds.
2. How deep should the beds be ( see proposed list of what I`d hope to grow.)
3. Will it get enough sun given it`s position.
I hope to grow some herbs, spring onions, lettuce, carrots, garlic, parsnips, leeks and possibly, if room, one wigwam of runner beans.
