Helpppp! 24 x1 metre border- clay, shady and next to fence- lucky me!,

I would mix plenty of  grit and well rotted farm yard manure or compost into the soil before you start planting. If you cant get either of those, garden centres sell soil conditioner which I think is fine composted bark or chippings. You dont want coarse bark or chippings, but they are good as a surface mulch

While the border is empty is the best time for soil preparation.

It is, but you need to make sure it is well rotted first.

The anemones are soaking. Now I've just got to find homes for all of last years pot bulbs.

They might just get a sunny spot in a line in the veg patch.

Need to move wild bees on

If theyre bumble bees, they will have finished and the queen gone into hibernation by late October. If they are honey  bees the brood lives over winter, But I think honeybees are less likely.

Lyn,aspirin is not supposed to be used as treatment for AF in place of warfarin.

If he doesn't want to take "rat poison" whuch needs regular blood tests and interacts with a lot of other  medicines, there are newer drugs which NICE has now approved , such as Rivaroxaban

see http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Atrial-fibrillation/Pages/Treatment.aspx

if he has AF it must be treated, but not with aspirin. Get him to talk to his doctor.
