Hey everyone I'm new just got 2 large starters of Hibiscus Mutabilis. Would like to do a area in the yard over time as a garden walk. These being my main focus for now. Any suggestions for companion plants? Any suggestions on how to plant for sure and raise well. The soil is red clay.I have Thought about mixing potting soil with soil for better drainage and easy for roots to grow.

I would amend the soil with compost. It's usually cheaper the potting soil/mix and probably better for the plants.

Ok in the ground. Some potting mix( we had), a handful of black cow, and the dirt from the hole mixed well and back filled.
