Planting in Clay

If you have heavy soil (clay, for instance), it is best to make a small mound of good top soil in which to plant your plants, so they don't get waterlogged and rot.

I agree , Hetty. Good tip!

When we first started gardening here (on clay hardpan) the only way we could plant successfully was to plant shallow, water in, and then back fill with other soil to crown height.
