I think I'm the other way round, more time to post in the winter.

Hello Mrs. Garden, good to see you. Are you here for a bit or was it a "now and then pop in"? Have you been keeping well? Just seen your lovely photos.

The fan gets quite noisy when it's hot.

Frustrating sort of day. Sun comes out and GH is hot then sky goes black and there is a downpour and it feels chilly.

Improving clay based soil

It would work best if the soil is damp, not hard and dry. I would add a load of compost and rotted manure if you can get it, also grit.

Plant id please

That's what I think too, lots of Ageratum plants in a plant tower.

Borrowing OH's Laptop now as he's in England. I'm fairly clueless and wouldn't know an Ad Blocker if it jumped out at me!

Apparently dead gazanie

They look dead to me. I live in Dordogne in France and the winters can be colder than England. I've never had a gazania that has survived the winter. I wonder if you could be French or Italian as you call them gazanie?

Still can't decide what to do with this border.

What about a small tree? Then it's trunk will be in the lower bit and you could plant something like hardy geraniums under it. I see the neighbours have a silver birch, something like that with a light canopy would provide dappled shade. Amelanchier? Rowan. Or a crab apple would help block the view and have blossom in spring and coloured fruit in autumn. A climbing rose would be lovely too.
