Preparing for fall planting

Hi all I just came in from the garden so of course I am so happy and full of plans. I got to add some brand new homemade compost to the flower bed I've been working on for this fall. And I got to thinking I've never done this before so the question is besides getting all the weed and grass roots out of the area tilling up the clay that is there and adding compost to it what else should I be doing so that I have a good chance of the columbine sprouting next spring?

I start my columbine in trays then transplant into my beds 'cause I can't figure out the baby columbine from clover! I have several that are thriving in the worst clay/gravel combination but amended with well-composted manure (of which I have a ample supply!). I'm Zone 5, so not sure if we're different. I haven't tried seeding them in the fall.
