How to fill a veggie planter box in 6 steps

  1. Scoria level with the waterline
  2. Some geotextile to prevent the soil filling the gaps in the scoria + aids in wicking the water up to the soil
  3. First layer of organic mulch + mushroom compost goes in (courtesy of @redhillgardencentre)
  4. Sifting the original topsoil to remove roots and rocks (and 3/4 of a rat somewhere 😬)
  5. Mixing in sifted topsoil
  6. (Not pictured): Do it again! Another layer!!
