The Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association might be able to advise.
what depth needed for a new herb bed?
What soil depth is ideally required for a herb bed? I plan to move existing box hedging (is this a good idea) that is approx 9inches high and plant a variety of herbs. This is being dug out from existing gravel area with mixed hardcore.

Herbs like well-drained, open quite deep soil. They are best grown in the open soil, not in containers of any kind. Stony or gravelly ground will not cause problems for most herbs, as it improves drainage.
Box hedging can be moved.
