Manufactum’s Corrugated Iron Tomato Bed
A favorite spot for tomatoes.
A smaller variation of the raised bed is the so-called tomato bed, a garden implement that has unjustifiably slipped into anonymity; it creates the optimal growth conditions for plants that require a great deal of fertiliser and love a "warm foot" – as is the case with tomatoes. During the growth period, the biological waste accruing in the kitchen and garden can be directly disposed into the ring (which has been, of course, filled with good soil and fine compost); the ensuing decomposition process provides the vegetable plants with ground heat and excellent nutrients.
Gardening at a Higher Level. Natural Intensification.
Especially in confined spaces, the old horticultural culture technique of the raised bed offers the opportunity to naturally intensify horticulture and multiply the crops without additional fertilizer; In southern China, the culture has been intensively cultivated on hillside beds for centuries and the special fertility of this cultivation has been used. A further development from recent times is the raised bed, which has many advantages: the soil temperature is significantly higher than in the field - the side walls are directly illuminated by the sun. The higher temperature of the soil allows up to three harvests a year, as the seeds germinate faster and the vegetables ripen earlier. The right filling with the best soil qualities is a prerequisite for optimal plant growth. We add a manual to each variant of our raised beds. Last, but by no means least, in gardens that are haunted by snails or voles, a raised bed offers better control and control options.
