You Will Need
- Organic matter, such as compost
- A garden spade
- Iron sulfate
- A phosphate supplement containing gypsum
Add organic matter
Mix organic matter such as commercial or homemade compost into the soil using a garden spade. Anything derived from plant or animal matter will help improve the soil structure.
Add iron sulfate
Mix in iron sulfate as a source of iron. While there is iron in clay, it is very hard for plants to extract it from clay.
Mix in a phosphate supplement containing gypsum. Gypsum loosens the clay’s attraction to itself.
