Probably the best thing to do is to amend the planting bed with compost or peat moss. This will loosen the soil and provide nutrients to the roots of your plants. You can also incorporate 2-3 pounds of gypsum per 100 square feet of garden. Once you've amended the soil, rake it smooth and plant. Best wishes with your garden.
