Haxnicks Raised Bed Growing System - The Complete Growing Solution for Small Spaces!•
Posted on 24 June 2009
Haxnicks, the plant protection specialist, has developed an easy-to-build Raised Bed Growing System that requires little maintenance and is ideal for growing vegetables, salads and herbs in small garden spaces. The 100% FSC-certified timber raised bed measures 1 metre by 1.2 metre. It comes with an optional fitted frame and choice of two protective covers. Haxnicks Raised Bed Growing System is made up of four parts. Building the Raised Bed is easy. The four lengths of FSC-certified, pressure-treated timber fit together with the rust-free corner-joining brackets provided. The single bed is 15 cm (6 inch) deep. However, the kit includes extension brackets so that you can add tiers if greater depth is required.
The Raised Bed Frame provides a 50cm high, arched, black-metal framework for the protective covers. It slots securely into holes in the joining brackets of the timber base. The covers then fit over it securing firmly at the corners for a snug fit.
Create a mini-greenhouse with the PVC Weather Protection Cover , it warms the soil for earlier planting and retains warmth and humidity for quicker growth. Flaps at either end make ventilation easy. Made of heavy-duty, clear PVC, it provides robust weather protection for newly-sown crops.
The Micromesh™ Pest Protection Cover helps retain soil moisture whilst providing the best possible protection from insects, including aphids and carrot fly, and other pests. The ultra-fine mesh allows air and water to easily pass through, but protects against scorching and other weather damage. Haxnicks Raised Bed Growing Systems are available from all good garden centres or call Haxnicks on 0845 241 1555.
