If you hang things from fence you need to establish who owns the fence first

http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/fences-legal-high/4237.html

and that it can take the weight-bearing in mind you need something put onto the fence to support whatever it is.

As for flowering plants you need something that will tolerate mostly shade-begonias instantly come to mind but there are plenty of others

As for vegetables you may struggle in that situation from lack of sunlight-and they are high maintenance-you haven' t got a lot of space -what did you have in mind?-what do you like?

Have had to repair the chicken run-why do they have to keep finding an escape route-this time it was on the gate -well it is well chicken-wired now so hopefully that route has gone

I see John Terry despite all the evidence against him was found Not Guilty-mmm

It is where excess water has been sitting and not draining away properly that is all -if there is no visible rot on the potatoes they will be fine

Earwigs

They are nocturnal so you need to find their hiding place-also there is a well used trick of placing an upturned flower pot filled with straw near the plants -the theory is they hide in there in the daytime so you can dispose of them then

You will never get rid of them and they also do some good in the garden
