    Hello everyone, I’m starting to look into doing a raised bed vegetable garden and have a question on the mixtures to use. I’ve found lots of info on using the different percentages of top soil/compost/etc, but my question is, does all of this get mixed together, or am I doing layers of all of them? That’s one thing everything seems to skip over. Am I doing say 60% topsoil on top of 30% compost and 10% potting soil? Or do all of those just get mixed evenly?

    Lastly, any specific brands that make a good topsoil/potting soil? And same for compost I suppose.

    Thanks in advance!

    In the beds you mix everything together. For seeds to use in transplants use either potting soil or compost
