Clay soil found in new garden bed, can you still plant?

7 years ago

I bought this new house with blank canvas for gardening. Im trying to plant hostas and cali lilies along the fence but have discovered its clay soil as I have it all dug up now.

Can I just break it up and mix a good soil and compost/ fertilizer with it?

Or would I need to remove the clay soil and put a good quality soil in?

Im fairly new to gardening so I want to make the right choice but honestly don't want to get to over my head.

Thanks :)
