Once we'd worked out the position of the raised bed (moving a prickly pyracantha!) everything went smoothly. After starting with a lack lustre drill, we eventually organised a powerful one (thank you, Karen!) and the timberlok sleeper screws shot through the railway sleepers perfectly. The onions, spinach, strawberries, lettuce and runner beans are now all growing, and hopefully promising a bumper crop. It makes good use of what was a wasted space.
RAILWAY SLEEPERS USED:

Thanks for the photos, jane. A great railway sleeper addition to your garden that promises a summer of wonderful fresh veg!
