My husband and I are planning a HUGE extension of our gardens to be planted next spring, but we're definitely not looking forward to digging into all that clay in the field, or losing the healthy few inches just below the surface. We're looking into lasagna gardening, on recommendation from some friends of ours, and we still have a couple questions:
If we put the effort in and get all the newspaper/hay/manure/etc down on the grass now and wait til the spring to plant (obviously), will the frost affect the process at all?
What kind of compost materials are best for fighting clay?
Should we mix the layers before planting?
Thanks so much in advance for any info you can give us!
