The soil I have to work with is just about solid clay about a foot down. So drainage is a huge problem not to mention clay being pretty crapy for growing anything.
Are there ways to deal with this? I mean, I suppose I could shell out big bucks and have a backhoe dig out a large amount of dirt and then refill it with better soil, but something short of that is there hope?
Do any plants LIKE clay? My garden is a butterfly and hummingbird garden so I'm looking for plants that atract them. Anyone know a plant that can tolerate clay, the poor drainage of clay AND attract butterflies and/or hummingbirds?
