Birds love honeysuckle berries when they're ripe and they're a useful source of winter food for them - and they look lovely.

I like groups of the same plants together, in groups of three or five; they look much better when they grow than different plants all dotted about separately - it's accepted good garden design to do this.

Can I grow veg next to Bracken?

I'd just keep the bracken strimmed back early in the season and not let it grow and get to the stage where it develops the spores.   

Yes, they're bad for you if you breathe them in quantity etc, but kept cut down they're no problem.
