One house my Mother had had over 70 clematis growing through the trees ,they were ok  and kept in check but they can strangle a tree and as in covering it and taking over ending in a bit of a mess,but they do look better growing through a bush or like mine ,a rose ,passion flower and red currant bush.

Whats Vermin? most of the wildlife if we take into account everybodies dislikes or what  seems to threaten our exsistence.Like people we cant all get along together in peaceful harmony which is a shame.Things do need controlling ,you cant have a house full of mice and the farmer cant have all his crops eaten by rabbits but we should have some understanding we cant have it all our way.

sounds like you are doing a cottage garden,which I think is lovely.They use grow flowers that were native but lupins,hollyhocks,roses,lavender,naserstuims.mixing tall with short .can be very stunning.

I remember many years ago when I lived in the country ,(we had a massive garden) we had lots of air raid shelters and one big corragatted one that had a office and garage.This one was pulled down and my brother found after a little digging ,the remains of a horse and the cart ,which had belonged to the milkman many years before.

I have a few sumachs taken from suckers at my mothers home some 35 years ago.They are persisent in that the suckers and seeds pop up every where.you can prune them as they tend to get a bit straggly if thats the right word.they are beautifull but can get out of hand.

sounds a lovely place to be,you are very lucky and sound very happy.I find great joy in watching wild life and I know some things are not very nice to witness but it is the way nature is.
