What type of soil or compost as I will be planting in a Planter 6ft x 2ft x 2ft. Newbie to growing fruit.Thank You.

Hi Brian. I would use a good quality topsoil mixed with about 20% compost and plenty of well rotted manure. Bear in mind that fruit bushes will remain in situ unlike vegetables so it is best to get the soil to as high a standard as possible from the outset. I would top dress around the bushes in later years with well rotted manure. I hope this helps. Andrew
