2nd year doing sfg -question on mix

linda021025(6B)April 14, 2013

It's my second year with the sfg raised beds and I had some settling in the boxes - about 2-3" (sides are 12" high)

Can I just add compost to raise the height of the soil or should I add it as a mix (compost/vermiculite/peat moss)?

Compost is all you need to add.
