Answer: Amending soil is a long term process, if you continue to mix with compost, humus, leaf mold and a little sand eventually you will have a much looser soil. You should also check the pH and add gypsum to help break up the clay. Always have a soil test done first to determine what the nutrient levels are before adding more fertilizer. In clay soils raised beds can be a great help, you can limit watering directly to the plants.
