Raised bed project

raised beds

1.2 * 2.4m raised bed design at Pen Dinas

We are developing a raised bed, complete growing system, with the aim of making growing as easy as possible for novice and less experienced growers. They are made from untreated Welsh larch, and are strong, durable and attractive. All you need is enough space to locate it in a spot that gets a fair amount of sunshine each day. Even if you have no soil or ground to put it on, it can still sit on top of concrete, slabs or tarmac.

They are easy to assemble and can stock more than one high and come in widths of 1.2 m (4 feet) and lengths of 1.3 m, 2.4 m or 3.6m The one pictured is 2.4m (12 feet). We are planning to sell them along with a support package.. gardeners can follow a live blog which we will update weekly, telling what to do, what to look out for and answering questions of problems that people may be having. we will also be growing vegetable plug plants to plant in your bed at the right time of year.. helping you get the best possible results.
