Soil for a tropical bed

earthworm73(WA z8)February 17, 2012

The wife and I are going to have a walled raised bed put in. The walls will be about 14-18 (+/-)inches tall. I am wondering what kinda soil we should fill it with. I am thinking either straight up compost, topsoil or a combo of the two? I will also add a small amount of homemade compost that is supercharged with horse manure, fish remains and seaweed along with your standard home compost ingredients.

That combo sounds just right for plants. Show us pictures when you get it done.
