Rich organic soil for organic raised garden boxes


Good morning,
My name is Osvaldo,
Would you please tell me what is the the best soil to use in box gardens to grow organic vegetables.
Kind regards,


Thanks for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners.

A simple mixture of triple mix plus compost – both readily available at garden centres – will work very well in your raised vegetable beds.
