hi,
this is my first year using a greenhouse which is 10ft * 8ft.everything has been grown in containers so far.but i was wondering if i was to to put in beds either side maybe 10" deep or so would i be able to make better use of the available area .any advice on maximising the available space would be appreciated.

The real advantage of growing in what is called border soil as opposed to containers is the watering is easier and can be more occasional. Soil should be as rich and weed free as possible and good structure (friable and crumbly)
