Thank you for this, I only have wood chipping that I use for my chicks, but will go hunting for pine tomorrow when my dog has his walk.pile the compost as high as possible, also bark chunks, leaves, anything organic and rotted will help.
clay might be somewhat acidic.
what i would so is mix what you have as best you can just to get the plant above grade so it will drain ok. after next season you can lift it up and add more organic material and more acidifiers like sulphur (but mix that with the soil/compost you are adding and let it perk for a while before setting a plant with it).
in FL which has notoriously horrible pH for blueberries they grow the plants on/in piles of bark chips and pine straw. pretty much any organic material is going to be an improvement over subsoil that has a higher pH.
