Amending soil for camelia
I have very powdery sandy soil. I want to plant camelias, gardenias, silver maples, weeping willows, dogwoods, and pecan trees. I am just starting to landscape my new property. I have heard on this board to not amend the soil. But my local nursery suggested that I add peat moss to the hole. What do I do? I trust the locals, because they have the same soil conditions as I, but ...
What do you guys suggest I do to plant the above mentioned trees? I'm pretty new to botany. I grew a garden last year that did so-so, but I think will do better this year. But I've never planted trees.
THanks in advance.
