I have clay soil, and I've added clay amender and mixed in pretty deep, since I plan on planting a few palms and other plants. How do I know if I added enough amender? When is it ok to plant?

Amending clay soil to a depth of 10-12 inches is usually enough to get palms and other landscape trees and shrubs off to a good start. I don't know what kind of amendment you used, the the package should indicate how much to use for the garden bed. You should be able to plant immediately after incorporating the amendment material. Good luck with your landscape.
