1) A rototiller is a machine that turns the soil over, which saves you
having to do it by hand.
2) If your soil is pretty heavy clay you need to add a 2" layer of sand to
the topsoil before you use the rototiller or shovel. The sand will help with
the drainage of the soil. Some peat moss wouldn't hurt either (same amount
as the sand).
3) It would also be wise to add a sprinkle of bone meal in every hole that
you plant in. Mix some more in the soil you are filling the hole with.
Hope this helps,
