I have some soil that's very lacking in substance Obelixx, dry, but not sandy, like dust. Some plants go well there so I haven't tried to improve it. In one gale a few years ago I thought a Bupleurum fruticosum had been broken off but it had been blown out of the ground after at least 5 years growing there.
The verbena haven't broken, they're half out of the gound, as was a 4 year old buddleia. I've cut that back a lot and pushed the rest back upright. All will be well.
