what can i do with the soil in my garden, nothing grows very well at one part of it, the soil is very heavy like clay, but at the other end it is sandy and ok.i also have a problem with weeds they seem to like it,as also do the slugs and snails . jean



I also have a heavy clay soil, all you can do is keep adding as much compost, leaf mould anything you can lay your hands on, I use spent compost from tubs and pots that I have grown my summer bedding in, dig in a much as possible, It will improve the condition of the soil, its an ongoing job really. Weeds will like the sandy soil its easy for germination and young roots to get down into, more work I'm afraid, keep hoeing.
