Give raised beds some TLC

Garden News (UK) - - About Now -

Raised veg beds are in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar with be­gin­ner gar­den­ers and im­prove ac­cess for less-abled grow­ers, but the hot sum­mer has left tim­ber dry, warped and look­ing sorry for it­self. Bowed tim­bers should be screwed back in place (use deck­ing screws be­cause they’re pro­tected against rust) and all ac­ces­si­ble sur­faces painted with wood preser­va­tive. Check that tim­ber treat­ments are suit­able for use on wood that’s hous­ing ed­i­ble crops be­fore buy­ing.

Raised wooden beds may have suf­fered through the hot sum­mer so do any re­pair work now
