What is the best way to improve "Clay soil"? I'm wanting to improve the whole garden, incorporating vegetables, flowers & shrubs.
Hi! Thanks for writing. The best way to improve clay is to add organic matter, such as compost or peat moss. As these materials break down, they help push tiny clay particles apart, letting water drain more freely and giving more air to plant roots. Additionally, organic matter encourages beneficial organisms in the soil that help your plants. Learn more here! http://www.bhg.com/gardening/yard/fix-clay-soil/
