Pros and Cons of Double Digging
Has anyone here gone to the trouble of double digging their garden?
I'm removing a patch of lawn. For now it's only going to be about 4 x 8 or so. I'm running short of homemade compost and am really reluctant to bring in any "soil" from elsewhere. I really don't trust what's in it and I'm going to be possibly planting vegetables in part of it. I'm extending an existing bed that has a mishmash of perennials and my rose bushes.
So, back to double digging. I've read it really can make a difference. Is it worth it, or am I just as likely to have success just putting compost in the top few inches and planting in that?
