Just Wait: “Unto Dust HE Shall Return!”

04/03/2017 § 9 Comments

I am CLAY SOIL that formed over millions of years  through an elaborate process as the Earth evolved. To the homeowner, who wants to put a rose bush here, I am just “bad dirt.”

    But the rose bush will look so much better

    • I certainly HOPE so! Digging such big holes for a dozen roses* is a whole lot like WORK!

      *not all red.

        Bet you were bushed after claying around in the Dirt – lots of gossip for the neighbours to spread about what you were putting to bed . Some of those folks just keep gravelling on and on expressing their sediments, raking up old issues & not leaving it alone.

    I had a friend named Clay. He needed as much amending as your soil.
    With some work, he turned out to be pretty productive, as your rose
    bushes are sure to be.
    A lot of organic matter, a little sand, and some top soil should take care
    of your roses needs.

    • The company I bought the roses from had specific suggestions for preparing the soil, starting with REMOVING the soil from a 2-cubic-foot hole. Filled 3 wheelbarrows from what I took out of EACH hole. Good thing we have a deep ravine.
