Q.Re: My Previous Question. Heavy Clogged Soil

Sorry I didn’t make my question clear enough. When I said chips, I meant very small dross stones, which I thought might allow better drainage. What is your opinion? Regards Sarah

It can help with drainage, but my previous statements still stand. The nutrients in clay soil will remain, largely, unavailable without heavy amendment. Please refer to the articles in the last answer for the best ways to amend your soil to perform to its potential.

Thank you will check closely with your advice. But did ask you if I would be better planting in a large pot?
Also I would like to transfer my fuschia plant, when would be the best time?
It is still flowering at the moment. Regards Sarah.
