Evergreen plant to use a privacy screening that are thin

Posted: 02/05/2014 at 20:50

Any ideas of shrubs or climbing vines that I can either train up a fence or plant a against a fence that I can either keep trimming to keep thin or will grow against a fence. I'm reluctant to plant ivy as it can damage the fence and become invasive.

My garden is really infested with them they have killed a few nasturtium seedlings that germinated, my cestrum tomentosum is covered top to bottom in them and they are all over my Californian poppy seedlings. Sprayed them all with soapy water that seems to have done the trick but am going to keep a good eye on them. Something's eating my clematis leaves and stems on the young ones and cant figure out what it is also.

Propagators

Propagator will speed up germination but they are not absolutely necessary. I would sow sweet peas direct in the soil now however.

will my new four tier plastic greenhouse work same as a glass one?
