Placement of gardening box

Post  BDumler2 on 4/3/2012, 1:34 pm

Can I put my box on top of rocks or should I remove them. There is weed cloth under the decorative rocks.

I would think it would be fine. Depending on the size of the rocks, you may want to put weed cloth on the bottom of the box to make sure the soil stays in.

Thank you. I just planted my asparagus and now I need to level my next box and add the mix to plant my strawberries. I'm full time caregiver for my Mom so I have to squeeze things in when I know she won't try to get up. I just watched Mel's video which is very good for a beginner. I also have earthboxes. Thank you again for your help.

@DBumler.....Welcome to the forum. Lots of good advice can be found here from the members.

For your location (in your profile) could you enter the state and the zone you're in (like NH 5a or 6 or FLA 9a) instead of just USA? It could be helpful to our responses in future for your particular area since weather plays a big part in gardening.
