    I have decided to take a couple of different approaches to the beds on the allotment to see which works best for me going forward. Half will be weeded, dug, cultivated etc, The other half I will try the no dig method. I have plenty of cardboard so will lay this down and cover with a good layer of horse manure and compost. From what I have seen on here and other sites any roots should be able to penetrate through the cardboard so am I right in thinking I can plant straight away?

    If you have well rotted horse manure, you absolutely can plant straight into it

    Good luck with it!
