I have clay soil. Do you have any plant suggestions?
Clay soil requires frequent attention to maintain good growing conditions for your plants. Improve the soil by adding organic matter like compost or peat moss when planting and transplanting, and mulch planted areas with shredded leaves and other natural materials. Then try planting some flowers that can tolerate and break through the clay soil. Purple coneflowers, bee balm, switchgrass, black-eyed Susan, gayfeather, New England aster, heliopsis and goldenrod are a few sun-loving perennials that will get your garden off to a good start.
