Step 5. Cover the inner box with plastic

If you are using treated wood, staple plastic film to the inside of the frame.
The plastic will stop the poisons from the frame seeping into the soil.

A good source of plastic film is from plastic rubbish bags or maybe even from the bags that you buy the soil in.

Step 6. Fill the box with garden soil

Fill the veggie/herb box with potting mix, garden soil or similar

The box will take approximately 9 cubic ft (240 litres) of soil.

The soil can generally be purchased in handy plastic bags of varying sizes.

Garden centers in your own locality are always good places to seek planting advice as they are familiar with local conditions.
