Let's start with your winter hardiness zone which is 7b. Typically, soils in the area are acidic although I am a big fan of getting soil tested when starting in a new garden. North Carolina extension service. has extensive information on growing in the different areas of NC and they do inexpensive soil tests. Here are some links that I hope you find valuable.
