What's the best soil to plant camellias, hydrangeas and azaleas?

I have an east facing courtyard and wish to create an oriental style garden, I think the plants are right for the direction. Currently they're all in pots and have been for awhile, I'm worried the ground is "to heavy". What can I do to improve the soil?

You're right - camellias, hydrangeas and azaleas enjoy an easterly aspect. The addition of Liquid Gypsum and lots of organic matter (aged manure and spent compost) will improve the texture of your soil. Work these materials thoroughly into the upper level and water well afterwards.
