    Hi Hawthorns,

    Not really. you need something a bit more substantial in a raised bed as once it dries it will be a swine to re-wet.

    Why are you putting plastic down if it's on tarmac? you'd do better to dig out the tarmac IMHO.

    I'd go for topsoil and mix in some Pelleted chicken poo or some rotted Muck (bagged is OK) - you could mix the coir in with it if you want

    A local soil supplier does a top soil and compost mix which is what landscapers use
