  • Clay soil - learner gardener needs help!

    My garden is on an island north of Auckland and i desperately need to improve the soil.

    I am not an expert gardener but I have a truckload of enthusiasm! I have been reading up on soil improvement but am more confused than ever.

    What do I use, bearing in mind I bring everything over in my boat? I like the idea of getting in bales of pea straw, (not too heavy!) but do I use it with compost and is fertiliser necessary? Do I layer it up or mix it all together? I see arguments for and against gypsum. Help?

    Thanks in advance

    What kind of soil do you have?

    best thing to start is to determine the soil condition.
    PH level
    hold water

    A lot you can do without bringing to much from mainland its just to first know what need doing
