How does the speed of clay in soil affect plant growth?

Soils with high clay content are able to retain water and are

generally classed as fertile. Vegetation on these soils is usually

more vigorous and of greater diversity.

A high clay content also means that the soil can retain more

nutrients such as fertiliser for a longer period of time, therefore

increasing the nutrients the plants absorb, and therefore, lol,

increasing the speed at which the plant will grow!

Haha there that's my answer.
