New to forum
Hi everyone! New to garden web. Thought I was an experienced gardener but after this year, I am just a babe in the woods!
I'm sure I will have lotsa questions that seem elementary to ya'll, so I hope I don't bore you.
first question concerns amending my NC red clay. I tried it this spring and didn't do enough. Is there a ratio that you go bug? I am doing 4-6 small-ish beds 10-20sq feet each. They all have plants in them and I will be putting them into pits while I amend then replanting. Is the city's compost good stuff? do they have any left this late in the season?
Let's start with that one and I apologize for the onslaught of questions that should be coming! :)
Do we dig Dahlia tubers here or let them winter over in the ground. And if they are all died back as of 3-4 weeks ago, does that mean they are done for anyway?
( see, couldn't help myself! )
