Has anyone used decking protector on fence panels?

I prefer No Nonsense Wood Treatment Clear. Using a pressure sprayer. Much cheaper.

Have you looked at the Ronseal fence life range.

It won't necessarily cling to the wall on its own.

To train it to a brick fence or barrier is easy enough but not automatic as the vines will be more inclined to be groundcovers & not climb anything until they find something wooden (tree or fence), & even then won't necessarily climb up unless its seeking sun -- if plenty of sun reaches it it's not that interested in climbing. You might get a trellis to attach closer to the brick, in order to have something to wind the ivy through & upward; once established on the trellis it will continue to spread left & right even on the untrellised part of the brick. If it could be planted above the wall like on a cliff edge, it would spill down more readily than it will climb up without encouragement. Or if you even just train it up a few slender sticks that are placed up against the bricks,
Eventually each upward-trained vine will find a part of the wall it wants to adhere to, & then the stick can be broken out of the vine, & it'll continue to spread on the wall.

What is my plant and can it be saved?

Reply from Nemasys.

"Good morning 

I have asked for advice on this matter. 

Currently we have not conducted any compatibility tests between Provado Vine weevil killer 2 and the BASF product Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer , however as it is a couple of weeks since the application of Provado Vine weevil killer 2, we feel that  an application of Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer should be fine, however we cannot make any guarantees in this matter. 

Please do not hesitate to contact BASF if you require further information. 

Kind Regards

Leave it to mum. They will win or lose. That is life. Nothing you can do will help. You own sent could make it worse. 

They are like daft teenagers out on the drink for the first time. I hear mother black birds crying out for wandering fledglings twice a day now. Its part of life. (hard to ignore I know but you must)
