Hi Beauties, I know that we have amazing combined beauty knowledge here on BH, but I am wondering if anyone here is known for their green fingers and could help out with some gardening advice. I am trying to establish a brand new garden (nothing there but weeds to begin with) and the soil is clay. I am finding that this clay soil business is proving a real challenge for the plants to thrive in.
For example, I've planted a row of pretty big pittosporums (about 1m in height) about 1-1.5 months ago and the leaves on some of them have started to turn yellow and fall, particularly from the middle of the tree going outward toward the branches. I did add good compost and soil to the holes before I planted them and have been watering them fairly regularly.
Any ideas on how to help out my poor pittosporums?
Or ideas for plants that do grow well in clay soil?
Thank you kindly in advance, beauties :)
