Raised Bed Gardening: Plan Your Vegetables and Herbs in Fall
(Page 4 of 4)
High on a Mountain Tip: The weight of heavy snow through the winter may make it necessary to till the garden again in the spring.
Bonus Tip: The soil used to fill deeper raised beds should not be mixed with any of your garden soil because garden soil can possibly contain disease organisms and will certainly compact too heavily. The soil in these boxes needs to be made from a combination of several different good organic amendments, such as a variety of compost and peat moss with vermiculite added to hold moisture and keep the soil texture light.
