If your ground has too much clay you're stuck with a big problem.
if there is some drainage Calcium Sulphate also called Gypsum will improve drainage even when yr plants are quite advanced. they might turn yellowish for a day or so but the Gypsum won't hurt.
next time maybe make raised beds. I 've grown plants in six inches of soil over pure clay.
