Raised Beds

Beyond the trees in the Dappled Shade bed is an area which was intended to be used for growing vegetables. There are two raised beds each measuring 2.7m x 1.10 m. There is a smaller bed in which bamboo grows as a protective shield, but the bamboo is proving to be a nuisance as the runners are popping up elsewhere.
