A member of EverEdge‘s sales team has taken the opportunity during lockdown to install an EverEdge Steel Raised Bed system.
EverEdge says that growing your own, at a time when we should all be avoiding going out as much as possible, makes perfect sense; so, below are the words of employee Mark.
“We’re on a north-facing slope, so I needed to dig into the bank to get it flat. It’s obviously not full of soil yet – I’m waiting for some more to arrive in the next week or so, and under the compost you can see is ‘Lasagne Bed’.
“I subscribe to The Idler magazine and have access to their wonderful ‘Academy’ courses, one of which is 8 x 30min episodes of Alys Fowler: The Idler Guide to Growing Vegetables and Herbs.
“The first episode is on the Lasagne no-dig method: On flat land, put a layer of cardboard (EasyBed boxes are perfect), get them nice & wet, then 25mm of grass clippings, semi-composted material or anything worms will love.
“Another layer of wet cardboard, weigh it down with sticks or mulch then leave it for a few months, by which time the worms will have done their magic and you’ll have a soft bed.
“I’ve cheated, so I’ve dumped compost on top of the lasagne as I will need to plant soon, but you can plant straight through the card if you need to.”
