Excellent product. The wood was better than i was expecting and it was super easy to put together. I suppose the only issue was delivery as the courier was a bit of a pig

Perfect for the price o it. I think 9 inch high is the correct height for raised beds.

All good

The products were brilliant the only thing wrong was not enough screws to put the products together .

Very easy to put together, looks good...just waiting for the rain to stop to get a chance to fill it.

29 pounds for a decent raised bed is a win. It has good clean 9 inch boards and easy fitting corners.

These raised beds are easy to make and definately the right price. I can well believe the 6-8 yrs of growing life as I've had 2 of these classics beds for about 2.5 yrs and they are still in perfect nick. Got another one this summer and have my garlic in it now. Delivery was quick, had it the evening after I placed my order.

The timber is more roughly sawn than appears in the pictures at time of this review, but it's a solid piece of kit at a great price.

Very good service. there were two pieces of wood that was not perfect, so the seller provided two extra ones.
January 04th, 2018
This raised bed is top quality, very solid when screwed together. The classic 9 bed was very easy to assemble and not too heavy to move into place when done. I would definitely recommend these beds especially for that price.

Just installed several of these 6x4 beds on my allotment. They look fantastic and everyone is asking me where I got them.....of course I recommended Quickcrop in a flash. Fellow allotmenteers are impressed with their quality, finishing and the soil-friendly preservative. I can't wait to get things growing in mine.
June 19th, 2017
Was relatively easy to assemble and so far is serving its purpose well. I was impressed with Quickcrop's willingness to adapt the size to fit vegtrug covers, that worked out well. Custom covers to fit the original sized beds would be a good idea though.
May 27th, 2017
These beds are easy to put together, with unwarpped boards and enough screws. I've had mine for a year. They need some attention to the screws on some of the corners simply because of the stress of weathering. The boards are in great shape. The soil in my back garden is not a joy to work with so raised beds are essential. These are a simple, no-fuss solution for a renter. When we leave we'll either leave the beds as is, or pull them up and spread out the dirt.

Hi Ann, thanks for your question, you could stack the 9" beds but, unfortunately we don't have 18" posts. We have these beds available in 14" height here; we have these beds available in 14" high too. https://www.quickcrop.co.uk/product/-classic-14in-high-flatpack-kit Kind regards, Carmel

Asked By Margaret
on May 24th, 2021
Hi, do these beds have liners in them, had troughs before that went lined and bases rotted through
Answered by Niall
on May 25th, 2021
HI Margaret There is no need to have liners in these beds as they don't have a base. The only exception to this is if you have them on a patio, decking etc. The reason for this is to allow the water pass through and not bring any soil with it. But the liners to make any real difference when it comes to product life span Niall Quickcrop

Would this also be suitable for growing flowers?
Answered by Niall

Hi Anne Absolutely. A lot of our customers use our beds for flowers and a 9 inch high bed is plenty tall for them Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Kate
on March 12th, 2021
I'd like to buy some of these raised bed kits for my garden. They will be placed on soil and I will be growing root vegetables in some of them. As they're going to be on soil does it matter what height I buy?
Answered by Niall
on March 12th, 2021
Hi Kate Once you break up the soil below before you add in the new soil it will be perfectly deep for root veg as they will grow down in to your existing soil Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Juliet Grainger
on November 05th, 2020
I want to put the planter into a soil bed. This is an area where conifers were growing & the topsoil is poor. I want to contain veg & be able to mix compost and sand to enhance the soil. Which products do you recommend and is there a greater risk of rot if placed in the soil?
Answered by Niall
on November 05th, 2020
Hi Juliet It is fine to put any of our beds down in to soil as the inside of the bed is up against soil anyway and the wood is treated for this. Our tonne bags of veg mix are the best for filling the beds as they already have topsoil, compost and horticultural sand mixed in. Other than that you can mix Envirogrind with existing soil and some horticultural sand as well Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Frank
on September 14th, 2020
are your kits in this range pressure or dipped treated?
Answered by Niall

Hi Frank All our wood is pressure treated Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Sophia Stobbs
on April 22nd, 2020
Hi, I want to put the raised bed in the part of the garden that has a patio (slabs of stone) as it's in the sunnier part of my garden. I want to grow fruit and vege. I do not really want to dig up grass as I want to maintain an area for my children to play in. Do I need to have a bottom piece of wood or what size raised beds should I order? Thank you. Sophia
Answered by Niall
on April 22nd, 2020
Hi Sophia It is fine to put them on a patio however you would need to use a liner to allow the water go through but not allow the soil travel with it avoiding nasty streaks on your patio. The best depth is 14 inches as in this sized bed you can grow any crop you want Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Bev walker
on January 23rd, 2020
Hi, is this timber treatment the same as that used for the premier and other beds and therefore certified for growing crops organically?
Answered by Niall
on January 24th, 2020
Hi Bev It is indeed. All our wood for any of the wooden products we sell is treated and certified for growing your own food with Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Justine Railton
on March 12th, 2019
what is the timber treated with? do they need lining because of the timber treatment?
Answered by Niall
on March 13th, 2019
Hi Justine The timber is treated with a substance called Tanalith E which is certified as fine to use on wood when growing food so there is no liner required. The liner does help increase the length of time the wood will last. Niall Quickcrop
Asked By David McGill
on February 01st, 2019
Is the timber treated ?
Answered by Niall
on February 01st, 2019
Hi David Yes it is treated which means that the Allotment boards will last between 6/8 years and the Premier boards between 10/12 years or longer Niall Quickcrop

What kind of mix between Compost and soil will i need for my Raised beds
Answered by Andrew
on April 16th, 2018
Hi Jim. We sell a compost soil mix which will be ideal, it is about 40 compost and 60 good loam soil. I would also mix in a good slow release fertilizer like out Seafeed manure and seaweed feed to boost fertility for demanding plants. I hope this helps. Andrew
Asked By Jim Grant
on March 30th, 2018
Hi , when i set up my raised beds do I have to dig out the grass
Answered by Niall
on April 02nd, 2018
Hi Jim With a 9 inch bed it is better to just turn the sod upside down inside the bed. With a 14 inch bed or above you don't need to do that as nothing will grow up through that depth of soil Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Sylvester Neylon

What is ideal soil preparation for growing vegetables carrotts parnisps in a raised bed 9" high.
Answered by Andrew
on July 11th, 2016
Hi Sylvester. Thank you for your question. For most vegetables the correct mix is 60% of a good loamy topsoil with 10% horticultural sand and 30% of a good compost high in nutrients. For Carrots and Parsnips the more sandy the soil the better so maybe 15/20% sand mix would be better and less compost

Hi Bob thank your for your question. A 6ft x 3ft bed x 9" high will take 380 litres of soil to fill
Asked By Terry Woollard

Are the boards pre-drilled ?? I want 3 of the 6x4ft beds.
Answered by Andrew

Thank you for your question Terry. No the beds are not pre-drilled but they come with instructions and screws and with an electric screw driver you can put a bed together in 5 minutes.
