Q. We have clay soil in different parts
of back yard and when we have rain we sometimes
have standing water..is there anything that
I can plant (for instance... flowers bushes
shrubs..etc.) in that type of soil and condition?
Or should we add something to the soil before
planting? We are in zone 5 Delta Ohio.
PS: Our bleeding hearts that I wrote
to you about earlier..that I thought were
dead...seem to be coming up and doing beautifully
and they made it after all!
A. Hooray for the bleeding hearts. If one has not grown them
buy a pot and place in a cool moist area of your garden
like a forest and sit back and enjoy those stems of little hearts
year after year!
As for your clay soil I am right back home where I started gardening in 1962 in a yard of solid clay and construction debris! I do not recommend any plants for this location
as such. You need to improve the garden bed first. If I had you plant something it may do fine for a year or two
but in even the short-term they would falter undoubtedly and die!
If we are talking a fairly large area rent
a roto-tiller and turn the soil over well
as deep as you can go. Add in bales of peat
moss sand or dried compost. Keep mixing
and tilling. The more you work in the new
material the better the garden will be.
Then you will have a bed with great drainage
and will be able to grow many plants there
besides cranberries as in a bog!
