Q.Treating Poor Drainage

Zone Me7 ql | sheila51 added on April 28, 2023 | Answered

Although my 30ft x 2ft Garden Bed will crust over in warm weather the soil beneath remains wet ( not waterlogged) at all times and I have lost many plants. I am now going to add Permalite and apart from turning this into the soil was wondering if i should dig deep and literally lay a 2 inch trough of it all along the Bed. This aside, is there anything else I can do or add that will reduce the amount of earth so compaction does not occur and there is more drainage space?
