Cheshire, United Kingdom
I've just cleared a small area 4 ft x 4 ft to make another raised bed 10 ins high, but flowers have been growing there for the last 35 years and the soil is rather heavy.
I propose digging it over and growing main crop spuds there for a start, which I'm told will improve the soil, and filling the area to the top as they grow with a mixture of soil,compost,leaf mould and manure as they grow.
Is this a good idea and should I put 9 in or 16 ?
Or is this not a good idea at all ?
