Answer: Your soil can be turned into rich loam if you add organic matter on an annual basis. You can spread 3-4 inches of compost or aged manure over the bed and dig it in to a depth of 8-10 inches and then plan on adding another 2-3 inches each spring. I'd spread some organic matter over the bare soil around the perennials now to act as a weed suppressant then plan on digging it into the soil in the spring and adding more organic matter next spring. A few years of this process will turn your clay soil into wonderfully healthy garden loam. Best wishes with your garden!
