Thanks for the advise. The fence is new so should take the extra weight but I just wanted to add a bit of colour as well as combining extra privacy from next door. What I don't want to happen is losing control of the Ivy or it encroaching on my neighbours property. I will definitely look into the alternatives as well.
I also bought a " Gloire de Marengo" Ivy as well as Green Ripple. Does anyone know anything about this variatey. I am a complete novice when it comes to gardening.
