What my neighbour did!

Well for a start it's criminal damage, S1 criminal damage act 1971. No climber will grow that quickly to cover the area so that you aren't overlooked. A clematis montana will grow very quickly if planted soon but it won't be evergreen. 

If it does overlook your daughters bedroom I would be suspicious of his motives and inform the Police. They won't thank you for the allegation, but if the circumstances are pointed out they will be obliged to investigate. 

Is this a type of ceanothus

Some pink buds DO give blue flowers. I have one in a clients garden, and was hoping it would be pink as I was going to get a cutting but it flowered bright blue. There is a hint of blue under the pink so wait and see.

JBD you can prune a Hawkshead hard almost to the ground. Right now mine and a few of my clients are just showing their new growth. If you prune back to the new growth they'll romp away over the summer months and they'll be more manageable. Mine a pink hawkshead reaches 4 -5 ft every year.

A few more plant ID's please

honeysuckle problem

I can't say I've seen this on honeysuckle before Gertie. Just squish them and see what happens, honeysuckle is fairly robust so I doubt there'll be long term damage.

Peony seeds need 2 periods of chilling before they'll germinate, so stick them in the freezer for a week, remove for a week then re freeze for a week then into compost. The trouble with them is the seeds on offer are usually too dry to germinate. It doesn't matter what sort of peony they are,tree or herbaceous they still need the same treatment. If you can get hold of fresh seed you'll have a higher success rate, but it's not often available. Best of luck.

Excellent news nut, british wildlife survey will be interested in that. I remember when they were everywhere till the wildlife terrorists caused their demise and released the mink.
