Q.planting shrubs in an area previously planted

Zone Preston lancashire | Anonymous added on August 20, 2019 | Answered

Hello, I have a large area that was planted with laurels and very large fir trees, all had been in around 50 years, the ground looks very un-nourished, I am going to rotovate the area and plant shrubs and plants there, what should I add to the soil to replenish it and do I need to wait to plant or can it be done as soon as the area has been rotovated?

thank you

Work some compost and/or purchased manure into the soil. You can go ahead and plant as soon as you have amended the soil.
