Thank you for all your help, I used a mix mash of everyone suggestions and I now have two prefect holes for the Jasmines to go in.

I already have the Star Jasmine but the Madagascar Jasmine is still coming via the post, I also have to get the soil all nice and healthy before I plant anything.

Now that I have a way to put plants into the ground it's going to be very hard for me not to fill the garden.

HOORAY! I was just thinking about your post while putting in some star jasmine on one of my fence lines and hoping you had a good time of it. So happy to see your follow up post.

Happy gardening!

Plant all the things!

I've dealt with bad soil more than I've had good soil. It feels so triumphant to be able to break through crappy dirt, amend it, and get things to grow.

For future planting, fava beans are supposed to be great for amending and breaking up soil. They help fix nitrogen in the dirt and the roots help break up difficult soil. I love planting them because I get both food and better soil.

Mustard is a good one to plant while you're fixing soil, too. You can eat it if you like (I love mustard greens and flowers), and then turn it under into the soil so the greens and roots act as compost and the pungency acts as a natural pest deterrent.

Good luck!

This is great news! So glad you were able to find a solution. Wanting to fill up your garden is a good problem to have :)
