Aljaz Plankl wrote:Okey, thanks for sharing.
I guess straw doesn't provide enough for hard clay soil.
In years of mulching i have found out that the best mulch is partly rotten, compost almost.
Charles Dowding started his one acre garden on clay soil, with compost/one year old manure on top.
Compost on top is one of the best options.

At 0.28 there are some boiling greens that our friend from Romania has and gave us seeds for. Do you know the name?
Thanks sorry for the interruption.

Leafmold cuts down the amount of compost used for half.
Leaves are easy to transport, are widely available everywhere in fall and can be made in leafmold with regular turning very fast.
