Re: Raised vegie garden beds made from fence palings

These are lovely and I am sure your sister will love them. I don't think I would use treated timber in raised garden beds for growing food crops. I know the jury is out on the matter of food contamination but I wouldn't risk any danger to my family's health.

Hi,

 

Very interesting. Well done! I am going to build a raised garden bed myself. Where did you get the posts? I couldn't find cheap posts at Bunnings. 

 

I suppose this would be good to use for planter box

Hi. Everything I used to make these was available at my local Bunnings. If you ask a team member I'm sure they'll be able to help you

Just line them with black plastic if you have concerns.
