Due to the current unprecedented demand for all things gardening and in particular Raised Beds, there will be a 3 WEEK DELIVERY TIME on RAISED BEDS.
If we can get them out sooner, we certainly will, but please be aware before you purchase any raised bed that it will be up to 3 WEEKS before you receive your delivery.
Thank you for your support and your understanding, we are working as hard as we can to satisfy all customers, Peter Dowdall
It was believed in times gone by that plants performed better in raised beds as they were closer to the sun and to God. What is certainly true is that many plants do better in beds that are elevated.
There are several reasons for this:
- The plants are that bit closer to the sun and therefore warmer.
- By creating a raised bed you can control the growing media that goes into it, for example if you want to grow carrots, parsnips and other root crops you can ensure that the soil is stone free and sandy, ideal for these plants.
- Also by raising the bed high enough you can ensure that the carrot fly cannot get at the plants.
- In a raised bed you can provide good drainage for the plants within.
