I have poor, shallow, alkali soil. The first year (over 20 years ago) nothing grew, and what did was yellow. Now, loads of farm manure and manure from my horses later, it's all thriving, but full of weed seeds from the horses organic hay! The second year I used a lot of fertiliser as well as the FY manure and it was fine.
