If your new garden bed has heavy bulky clay (very compacted, fine-textured) soil or an underlying hardpan layer, you need to dig at least to the depth of your spade or shovel. Apply gypsum to break the heavy clay. Leave 2-3 weeks for it to work. Then top with 2 to 3 inches of organic matter and work it into the top six inches or so of soil. A mixture of organic materials is best. For example, one inch of a high nutrient manure and two inches of low nutrient mushroom compost, leaf compost, or peat moss.
