Growing in high clay content soil?
I live in central florida, I'm starting a garden with Bush beans, Cailflower,Okra,Squash,Corn and I have pumkin seeds. My questions are: What can expect in high clay content soil? Can these be grown in the same space?
Hi, All of those crops can be grown in the same garden as long as they receive at least 6 to 8 hours of sun a day. As far as your soil is concerned, having a high clay content can cause problems for your crops. You need to add as much organic matter as you can (compost, rotted manure, leaf mold or fresh topsoil) to the garden and spade or till it in before planting. Clay soil, especially when it's dry, can be very difficult to grow anything in. So, add as many inches of organic matter as you can find, mix it in with your clay, and then plant.
