Planted in clay soil and watered in well but they died. When I replace them, what can I do to prevent this?

Hmm... It is hard t say without knowing how they died. If you could describe the pattern of their decline when they died (yellowing leaves, lost leaves, just how they looked as they died), that would give us a better idea.

Without knowing, I would say that you should have your soil tested as there may be a problem in the soil. Also, you may want to amend the soil as clay soil can be difficult for plants to grow in. You may find these articles helpful:
