We created 2 New raised beds for fruit, I thought I'd transfer strawberry runners into one and 1 yr old currant bushes into the other which I healed into spare ground earlier this year.

 

The beds are heavy clay and not been cultivated before.

 

Can you advise please, do you think it best to bung in horse manure to give some goodness (atm not even a worm exists in this infertile "soil"), or should I lime it to help bind clay particles together and then in a month or so manure it or do you think I can get away with just manure then transplant my fruit straight away (providing the manure is well rotted).

 

I'd appreciate any advice anyone can give.

 

Thank you

Mary
