The soil around my place is pretty heavy on the clay. I can grow a vegetable garden and it does ok but I want to start bringing this soil into a more desirable state. I was thinking I would till in compost every spring or fall not sure what is best or maybe both to speed things up if that's ok. So I called our local gravel topsoil place and they do carry compost but he said it was a "concentrated compost". What is concentrated compost? The guy a called was not sure just said you need less and not to exceed about 25% compost to soil.
So here are a few questions I have.
What is concentrated compost?
What kind of compost would be best to fix a clay soil problem?
Is adding compost every year the best solution for clay soil?
How much compost can I till in at once?
When is the best time to till it in spring or fall? Both?
I know there are a lot of questions there but I want to get started on amending the soil this year I know it will take time to get results but the sooner I start the better!
