Thanks watery, I also have an eponymous which is the only thing on that fence, the birds love it, maybe I should plant a few more to cover the fence like the ivy did.

Thanks for your help, I treated the ivy with a strong weed killer so I think I'd better wait til spring before I plant anything.

I have a west facing fence that belongs to my neighbour,  my original fence was covered in ivy and the birds loved it, but my neighbour has put up a new fence and doesn't like ivy, what evergreen cover can I replace the ivy with .
