I made a nice new bed one year heavily amending my clay soil with mushroom  
compost, purchased by the truckload. No bulbs survived over a year in that bed  
and most perennials have trouble as well.
Later, talking to the head of horticulture at Spring Grove Cemetery in  
Cincinnati, Ohio, I related this misadventure and he said they buy lots of soil  
amendments for their plantings, but they always send a sample out for testing  
before applying it to a bed. AND, they let it sit and age for a year before  
using as well.
