This nut feeder has got a cage around and the squirrel manages to get into the cage.

ive had to bring it in (the feeder that is not the squirrel)I don't want the squirrel to get stuck,silly I know but I would feel awful if it got stuck.

I guess no bird feeder is totally squirrel proof,

i don't know if you can see but the one squirrel is actually inside the nut feeder.

sorry I couldn't get a better picture and yes the squirrel got out ok.

As far as I know Hydrangea Seemanii is self clinging as well, it might need a little help ie secure by canes, but once it gets going it's ok.

It will be ok but you will have to be aware it might creep into the roof space, why not try one of the climbing hydrangeas they do well On a North facing wall. One sort is evergreen so you would have cover all the time unlike Boston Ivy which is deciduous .

Aeonium 'Zwartkop':- over-wintering.

I over winter mine in a g/h just above frost, I have had mine for a long time and they come through the winter ok.

Water very sparingly and take cuttings next year, as Verdun says really easy to do.

If you haven't got a g/h I wouldn't think a North facing window would of been warm enough .

Don't cover with net the birds might get stuck in the net, put a up turned wire hanging basket over them.
