Free Garden Plan

Gardening in clay can be a real challenge. This heavy soil often drains poorly after a rain, then dries to a concrete-like surface. The plants chosen for this garden can handle clay soil, and will also shine in better conditions. Among the selections are a hawthorn tree, blue rug juniper, lady's mantel, and daylilies. Alternative plant suggestions allow you to customize the garden to your liking.
