Re: Gypsum - Soil Conditioner

Hi all:

   We have a product available locally by the name of "Clay Cutter" ... it is 
composed mainly of pine bark fines and works like a dream!  Although I think 
you can save yourself quite a bit of money by simply improving clay soils 
with compost, shredded leaves and other garden debris ... seems to work just 
as well as most commercially available products.

   On the subject of gypsum, I have a friend who was given a bag of it to 
help with her clay soils.  She completely forgot about the bag and left it 
outside all winter and a good part of the following spring.  The bag 
decomposed and the gypsum had completely permeated and broken up the clay 
beneath.  Might be worth a try!
