Every garden, however small, needs somewhere to grow veg, even if it means constructing a raised beds on top of cobbles or paving ! We used reclaimed oak railway sleepers (1.2m x 145mm x 145mm approx) and stacked them on top of each other, using Timberlok screws to fasten them tight. We put a plastic membrane inside, filled it with soil, compost and horse manure, and planted it up with runner beans, lettuces, tomatoes, courgettes, and broad beans. The edge of the raised bed was also great to put pots of herbs on. A really satisfying project. And very tasty !
A great advert both for growing veg in a small area, and using reclaimed railway sleepers! The sleepers fit snugly against the wonderfully red coloured victorian brick wall, and provide a great container for all your wonderful veg. Looks great !
