14 May 11 (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I have just planted some winter vegies and have noticed that on watering them the water runs away. I have heard about gypsum should I be able to apply this now and does it take immediate effect as I belive my soil is mostly clay, although I bought in a truck load of Garden mix soil to cover the garden area My summer crop was leafy and looked ever green but No vegies... Is this due to me planting in an old chicken area and too much fertiliser? I like gardening and don;t want to give up. Any feed back from you guys will be much appreciated... Thank You .
