Why did the spade break? If the soil is clay then use a fork to break it up, not a spade...I have lost 3 spades with my soil whilst the forks are all still going strong.
I am always getting in trouble for spending money on the 'stupid garden'! Too many plants, compost, mulch, feeds, tools, heater for greenhouse etc. Yet there are complaints when something does not look right - gardeners cannot win.
