What are the optimum widths and lengths for garden beds?
Questions! - Depth of beds - living in PA and wondering if I can go with 2"x12" boards and if I should go 24" deep or if 12" is deep enough for my raised beds. Also, what should I use to fill them with? What type of mix? Can I used gravel at the base for drainage? Should I be lining the very bottom of the beds with screen to keep the grass from coming through?

Hi, I just discovered your video and this fantastic website. I'm a beginner in gardening and I live in Australia. WA Geraldton. I would like to find some gardenners from the same area. Any idea ?
Is the new product SALANOVA organically cultivated? Nowhere in the literature or video does it say? Makes a pretty crop, but is it GMO to get that way? HELP! Please point the way.
