    Default Raised Bed Size Guidance?

    Hi Folks,

    I want to build a couple of beds for 6 asparagus and 4 rhubarb crowns and wondered what your views were on size?

    Would a metre and a half square be big enough for the rhubarb and a two metre by a metre and a half do the asparagus?
    Cheers

    Danny

    Your metre and a half square is big enough to accommodate your rhubarb although the leaves are certain to over hang the edges. Two rows of three asparagus will just about fit in your other bed but you need to check out the spacing when you buy the crowns.

    Thought I'd bump this in case anyone has a view on the asparagus? Also it took me from a Rooter to a Tuber!
