I than you Ceres that also sounds like a good idea.there is a lot of ivy on the nearby fence so I could use some of that. Great for breeding butterflies too

Thanks. Sound son put some thick trellis wire on the back of the seat and I intend to train some everlasting sweet pea the next year but meanwhile the fence behind, especially at this time of year, looks so bare, a privet is a good idea. I thought of a buddlia but I already have one on another part of the garden and as you say those types of plants need a lot if pruning

I have a shaded corner in my garden tgat my new neighbours have recently made very open by cutting,down all their lovely trees ( they don't like trees) it has left me without any privacy to sit on my favourite spot. Can anyone please suggest a fast growing bush tgat won't need too much attention? The soul is clay but not heavy

I'll look at that site too, thanks. I think arching Country File in Ireland, when they included a look at Adam's farm too and the harm tics could do to animals and humans made me even more wary, especially in the evening time

Yes I'm sorry to say I have been nipped by one or two ladybirds, but the real bast culprit is a tic that looks a bit like cream coloured ladybird and that does poison bite.

Sorry can't take a picture of the ladybird. My son had seen it and it inspired a song,but I am slightly wary of different coloured ones as they sometimes bite, this one didn't though
