When we moved into our home last year, the flower beds were multiple layers of rock and very old scrubs. We had no worms so that tells you it was hard, compacted clay and grew nothing. Throughout the spring, we worked on creating better soil. We shredded newspaper, collected coffee grinds from the local coffee shop, gathered grass clippings, and bought worms from the local bait shop. It was on-the-spot composting, starting with the area by our one struggling mum plant.
