I am building my first garden and I had a
few questions that I hope youcan help me answer.

Texas and the soil here is mostly clay, iron ore, and very little top soil. we
recenly has a septic system installed and had left over soil. so i wanted to
build my first garden. I decided to build a raised garden, it measures 8'
6" x 12' 8" x 1' 4" . we filled it with the soil that was left
over, however i know that it is not healthy enough to support a healthy garden.

manure( live next to a stable). I know that would help but what

good source for finding what trees and plants thrive in a highly clay
Thank you for helping me with my
