Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

We have a range of soil types over our area, from the thick bands of red clay to the chalk bedrock. The clay seems to go in waves over the chalk so it varies in thickness. Those who struggle with heavy clay soil will enjoy the free draining nature of the chalk. I love my clay soil because it is slightly acid and allows me to grow camellias and rhododendrons. It is not acid enough to make blueberries happy though. March is a great month for these plants. Do try some if you have a couple of feet of clay before you reach the chalk. Rhododendrons have very shallow root balls and could make do with a foot of clay. I usually add some peat and tend to plant on a slight mound to make sure the drainage is good. Rhododendrons are one plant you do not stamp on to make sure they are firmly planted. ...
