The Q&A Archives: Shade and clay soil

Question: I've developed a small garden in the corner of backyard w/varying degrees of shade. The soil is red Tenn. clay which I've hand turned and may till if the rain ever stops. I don't want to amend the soil & need low maint./low cost. When it rains it stays somewhat wet, but it's on a very slight slope away from the house. I like ground covers/low growing shrubs/trees. Any suggestions? Thanks!
