Hi, I plan on building two big raised beds for growing veg in, I have 12 scafold boards in good order.
Is it ok to use them as edgeing or is it better to buy in something else ?, if I use them any recomendations as to what to treat them with considering their proximity to edible crops. thanks in advance

no they are perfect for vegetable raised beds. You can give them a quick coat of a wood preserver such as cuprinol, but mine have been in place at my allotment for 4 years now and still going strong. when they do rot away ill just replace them for about a pound a plank each!
