Not every raised bed has to be 90 centimeters high and 120 centimeters wide - if you only have little space, for example on a balcony or terrace - you can also use a fruit or wine box. These small wooden boxes make wonderful, mobile "raised beds", especially for plants that are not too deep-rooted, such as lettuce and herbs.Fruit crates are handy for small raised beds
Mobile beds on rollers or wheels
Mobile raised bed boxes are extremely practical, especially when space is limited. All you have to do is provide the raised bed containers with castors or wheels on the floor. This way they can easily be pushed aside later. A mobile wooden or metal base also works well. You can then simply place the wooden or plastic crates on top. Fill the plant boxes with good potting soil that you have upgraded with algae lime, horn shavings (€32.93) and compost.
To avoid waterlogging, you should also ensure good drainage. Therefore, provide the fruit crates with water drainage holes - if the container does not already have one - and fill in a drainage layer.
