Q.Fixing the Garden for ALL Types,

hunguryfarmer added on February 19, 2011 | Answered

Got red clay with a fair amount of topsoil, it is located where pines used to be . This past year we planted some Cancun lilies and they turned out excellent, probably got 300 bulbs from 6 original. My question is , do you think this spot will make for a good vegetable (beans, greens, beets, tomatoes) garden?

It sounds like the soil is fertile given how the lilies did, so it should be a good place to grow plants. As for the vegetables, as long as the location gets at least 5 - 6 hours of sun, they should do fine.

Regardless of how well the soil is doing right now, you should make it a habit to amend your soil a bit every year with organic material to help replenish nutrients that any plants grown there will use up.
