Subject: Soil ammending
Good morning! Today I'm in phase two of my Hosta
garden relocation project. After too many years of fighting the Maple
roots I've thrown up the white flag! I'd been considering this move for
a year or two, but after lifting Fire and Ice to take a look at the roots (it
has hardly grown in 3 seasons) and finding only 3 roots of it's own with a
mass of maple roots surrounding them I decided enough was enough!
Yesterday was spent removing *gasp* sod, and today I'll till, amend and
hopefully start transplanting. I live in Illinois and we have loam, what
recommendations would you make as far as soil amending?
