Newbie Gardener Needs Your InputSubmitted by bierdegarde on Fri, 05/10/2013 - 09:24
I purchased a prefab raised garden bed measuring 4'x4'x7". The packaging says fill with 8 cu ft soil. Another calculator says 10 cu ft. I've come up with a formula using 6 cu ft soil, 2 cu ft worm castings, 1 cu ft vermiculite and a 4# bag of Dr. Earth Veggie and Herb fertilizer to be used as directed. Now I'm trying to decide what soil to use? Would a fertilized soil be overkill? I plan on using plants not seeds. Should I use a starter fertilizer when transplanting? HELP!
