Here's another question (and then I'm going to bed!).

I bought my boxes from Homebase, and I can't figure out if the wood is pressure treated - so I'll assume it is. Can anyone recommend a wood treatment that will seal the wood but not poison my soil?

Cheers,

Jessica

Most all the harmful chemicals will leech out of thw wood in short order. The pressure treated wood over here has been changed dramaticly since 2003. There are some that are concerned by many about using pressure treated wood and I respect their positions

As for your specific question, I do not know what to put on the wood but you can try coverrng it with black plastic....Wood Treatment for Boxes 3170584802

Jessica ,

Was the box frame pre made for home base ?

Is the wood a nice creamy white with a few blazes of brown/ red in it or is it rough faced and slightly green / silver green in colour ? .

If the latter it may well have been treated tin=mber.

Can you bung up a photo in a weeks time when you have your photo posting permissions , one showing fullsize and one close up

I have always heard one should line treated wood with plastic and wondered what kind and why it did not leach chems into the soil.
