Help! Need Easy Way to Amend GA Clay

9 years ago

Hi! My question is twofold...What perennials grow easily in GA red clay, which tends to be poorly draining soil? And, second, what is the EASIEST way to amend soil? I love gardening, but absolutely dread and detest spending so much time and pain trying to mix/amend soil for planting. I usually mix about 50% red clay with purchased "garden soil", mushroom compost, and maybe soil conditioner. Digging in the hard red clay is back breaking, and I feel I can't ever get it to break down enough when mixing so that it will be a rich, well drained soil. Thanks for any help you can provide!
