Which forum would you recommend for growing veggies in a raised bed. I have been lurking in containers, but growing in 5 gal buckets seems to be totally differnt than a raised bed.
Hi, If memory serves, the vegetable gardening forum usually has a lot of discussion regarding raised beds. If there is a square foot gardening forum you could try that. Some forums are even available for specific veggies like tomatoes. Good luck! :)
Raised beds have the advantage of being in/on the ground, providing better drainage with no perched water. They also provide more space, more moisture retention, and take up WAY less space in ragards to how much you can plant per square foot. The advantages with growing in containers are that you can move them as needed, for storms, frost etc. Also, you can apply your fertilizer specifically as needed for each plant. Not to mention you can grow veggies in places where you cannot make a raised bed, like apartment patios and balconies. If I had to choose though, I'd definately go for the raised bed if I had the ability to do so.
