Problem Clay soil

Posted: 26/03/2012 at 11:37

I have a very similar problem, I have rocky clay soil and don't really want raised beds. I have found the best remedy is to plant something with large stringy root base like parsley or certain types of ornamental grass. let them grow for a season then dig them up if it's a larger plant or dig them in if it's grasses. I only disscovered this when I dug up my expired parsley plants to find beautifull soil this spring. I have also spent a fair sum of cash on composts and work it into my soil twice a year to improve the quality. Hope this helps.
