Build raised beds for planting that last. Growing your own vegetables is increasing in popularity in the UK. The RHS predict growing your own as one of their five key trends for gardening in 2020. Raised beds are a really good way of creating a healthy way to grow your own vegetables. Poor quality wood frames will rot within a few years. Our Oakstone timber planters are handmade using reconstituted stone ( concrete mix ) and will NOT rot- ever! You can build raised beds for planting that last.
Advantages of raised beds for planting:
- Create your own soil mix- no need to work with your natural clay soil;
- Add your own compost to your soil mix;
- Good height for planting and weeding, and
- Create a feature in your garden with easy access.
Building raised bed planters with stone walling, is another way of creating beds that will last.
