I live on the east side of Whitehouse with 100% clay soil. Our development went from being a soy bean field to a suburban neighborhood with a watering system. I have the plantings that the developer put in and a few natives we have planted but want to do more. What is the best way to start?

I covered the newspaper with a thin layer of dirt, then seeded it in the fall with a mix of prairie plants from Soil and Water Conservation district. No digging at all.

How can I get oak seedlings to survive. Mine are always eating within a year or two of moving into the yard.

In my shady area, jack-in-the-pulpit, geranium, ginger, trillium, and spring beauties do well in clay.

I use small fences around stuff to keep the rabbits from eating them when they're young. And Liquid Fence works well too.

A tomato cage wrapped in chicken wire works well too
