Soil Amendments

raised planter bed soil

Anonymous added on June 8, 2015 | Answered

I am preparing the soil for raised veg bed and have some extra wood chips from a flower bed last year. Can this be put into the soil for the veg bed? My reasoning was to put in toward the bottom for filler, aeration and maybe promote microbial action.

As long as they have been sitting awhile (a year should be sufficient), then I don't see why this should pose a problem, though mixing with compost may be better.
