I have dug out several trees, lots of ivy and small bushes and managed to clear an area about 10m by 2m as best I can in order to grow vegetables. I have done all I can to get as many roots out as possible. The earthis quite heavy and about 20cm down there is some clay.
What do I now need to do to get the soil ready as best I can for vegetables and also prevent regrowth of all the stuff that was there before? Do I need some sort of chemical or weedkiller?? Or manure to try and get soil ready for planting?
Help - I am a very inexperienced gardner who is trying to become more self sufficient?
