|Our public garden has new raised beds going into our new children's garden. We have compost from the garden and leaf mold. The 12" of soil below the raised beds is a good mixture that was put in last year with the purpose of planting. (Only the vegetables will be in the raised beds.) Can we use just the compost and leaf mold or do we need to add garden soil? Thanks for your help.|

|Incorporate some of your good soil with compost and leaf mold.
Some sulfate of ammonia, if compost isn't broken down.
Sounds good to me
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|I would put the compost on top first, maybe working it in a couple of inches down and use the leaf mold for mulching on top.
