The Q&A Archives: Soil for Raised Bed

Question: I have just built a 4' x 8' raised bed. I used (2) 3.8 cu.ft. bags of peat moss, (13) 40lb. bags of cow manure compost and (13) 40lb. bags of topsoil. Did I choose a good mix?<br>

Answer: Your mix sounds great to me. You might want to check the pH of the mix (contact your Cooperative Extension office--ph# 903-868-9515--for soil test kits). Other than checking that, it sounds fine.
