Rose bed to veg bed

Beryl Neill asked 13 years ago

Hi Gerry, I have been keeping roses Graham Thomas and lavender in a raised bed for about 6 yrs now. I want to convert this raised bed to a vegetable bed is this a good idea or should I start from scratch elsewhere. Thank you. Bees

There is no problem removing rose bushes and usign the bed for vegetables, if it is in a good sunny spot. A raid bed can be a bit dry for vegetables, unless you put in plenty of organic material and water in dry spells. If you have sapce elsewhere, you can do both.
