Best Answer

Clay soil has no air pockets in it. That is why you can make a pot that holds water out of clay. The plants laterally smother to death. Water cannot pass through the clay, so the soil stays soggy and the plant's roots rot. Clay soil is high in nutrients, but must be mixed with other soils such a silty loam in order for most plants to grow well.
