Q.How Can I Grow A Successful Raised Bed?
I got a gardening company to build a raised bed. They planted mint, sage and strawberries. For a while everything went well. Then we had birds and foxes eat the strawberries, so we got rid of them, followed by insects eating the mint. Then weeds started to appear. I admit I neglected them for a short while, which turned into (Photo 1) I’ve now pulled everything out and want to start again. (Photo 2) I haven’t used any weed killer. There might be some weed seeds still there and I’m still concerned about pest control including insects. How can I do this right? At this rate it’s cheaper to go to the supermarket and buy this stuff. Any help is appreciated
