Using the lasagne layering technique to fill raised vegetable beds is easy, cheaper and faster than shoveling piles of dirt!
Chloe’s using some Birdies Veggie Grow Crates to create some instant veggie gardens in her backyard. The best way to fill these ready for planting up is using the lasagne or layering technique – this also means you can create raised vegetable gardens quickly, easily and very little soil. You’ll need: – straw – lucerne straw – veggie soil mix – cow manure – pelletised chicken manure – eco-aminogro & eco-flo dolomite.
NOTE – these Veggie Grow Crates – do actually come with a false bottom that can reduce the dept of the bed to approx 30 centimetres. So if you want to get the crates and JUST fill them with veggie soil mix (eg. not do the lasagne layinering technique) then go with this option.
