I have a small flower bed outside our flat, it measures approximately 25 foot by 2 foot.
In it, I have; roses, camellia, lavender, bluebells, daffadils, bleeding heart, hyacinths, fuchsias, Asiatic lilies, mint and gladioli.
I would like to replace the soil, because not everything seems to grow the way it should.
Our soil has a thick clay level that starts about 6 to 8 inches deep.
Could you please tell me the best soil I should have, how deep I should go, how much I need for the area I've got, and when is the best time of the year to lift my flowers and replace the soil.
