Well drained soil is ok, but you would need more nutrients in the soil conditions... I would add some compost and 'garden soil' for your garden. If it is a small garden, consider building a raised garden bed mixing mostly garden soil 1 or 2 bags of compost and 1 bag of peat moss for a suitable garden mix. Also, make sure your garden has at least 6 hours of sunlight. Good luck!
