Thanks Andrew and Lissa. When I started the beds I was quite worried about the quality of soil that I had used - tired with not enough organic matter but it has turned out ok so far. I'm now trying to work out how to turn everything into wicking beds, I am so impressed. It was a fair amount of work to get set up but now is so easy. The bird net has made a big difference to growth in those cooler weeks - a nice side benefit of keeping Mr and Mrs Brushtail at bay.
