Default Raised bed - soil / media

Hi,

Yes I know I should have set up my raised bed last Autumn to give the soil / manure mixture time to break down.

However I am sorting it out this weekend and will be planting out in a few weeks. I'm in Surrey so no more frosty nights I hope.

I already have some decent topsoil to use. Is it safe to add well roted manure??

Regards
Brian

exactly what I am doing now. I have built the raised gardens and am steadily
filling them with nice rich worm infested compost and any supply of animal
poop I can get. I have scavanged some stud horse poo free from the roadside
but today found a riding for the disabled charity here in town with a
massive pile of well rotted worm strewn horse crap. The stuff at the bottom
is like soil. Help yourself they say all for a small donation.
