The plants you list will adapt to most soil types but will thrive in well-draining soil amended with organic matter. It's easy to amend soil prior to planting; spread a 3-4" layer of organic matter (compost, peat moss, etc.) over the top of the planting bed and dig it in to a depth of 8-10". Then level the bed, dig the holes and plant your favorite plants. The organic matter will help maintain soil moisture and make it easy for plant roots to become established. Enjoy your garden!
