If you have a bobcat, you can mix together the pindan, river sand, manure and
gypsum with the bobcat bucket and fill the beds. You will need to make the mix
up in these amounts:
4x bobcat buckets pindan
1x bobcat bucket manure
½x bucket river sand
2x kitchen bucket blood & bone
2x bobcat buckets clay soil
1x bobcat bucket pindan soil
2x bobcat buckets course river sand
2x kitchen buckets gypsum
2x kitchen buckets blood & bone
Then mix it up well and tip into raised beds, top with straw or hay 15cm thick.
Water really well. Leave to settle for a week and plant out with seeds or seedlings.
