 I am building my first garden and I had a few questions that I hope youcan help me answer.
My first question is about soil. I live in sw 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. what could i add to it to insure healthy soil. i have access to plenty of horse manure( live next to a stable). I know that would help but what else?
   My second question is what is a good source for finding what trees and plants thrive in a highly clay soil.
   Thank you for helping me with my questions.
               sincerly, Lisa A. Lang
