Plant roots need moisture, air and nutrients to grow, and a loose soil to provide room for that growth. "Double digging" is the best way to improve your soil; it improves drainage and aeration and adds organic matter. There are several good double digging methods; here's what works for me: Don't dig when the soil is too wet: disturbing wet soil results in large clumps that are difficult to break up later. Take a handful of soil and squeeze it. If it crumbles the soil is dry enough to dig. If it stays in a ball the soil is too wet. more
