Talkback: Wet clay soil

Posted: 30/01/2014 at 19:10
I too have heavy clay soil and get very irritated when' jobs to do now articles say ' now is a good time to move shrubs and divide plants'--- if only they would realise not everyone can!!Also, novice gardeners may not know , it all depends on your soil to do these tasks, and may kill off their precious plants. I find this very irresponsible.Lynda.

I use 'Silent Roar' which is Lion dung (who knows!?) expensive ( from Garden Centres) but seems to work for me,even after rain. Good Luck!

I'm going to try chopping my Rudebeckia ' herbstonne ' this year-- as last year it grew to about 6 ft.! It also needs thinning out , hopefully thend week end-- if it does'nt rain -- or snow!

I have found Lions dung works quite well. As I have quite a bit of digging to do, moving plants etc., in a newish garden, I have quite a lot of covering to do, soI use whatever I can get my hands on --- ie mostly empty compost bags and canes -- not the prettiest sight I can tell you !!
