I think it`s a nursery web spider.

Clematis in pots

I find it easier to take lots of inter nodal cuttings.

And then my tree fell down..

I would see the gap in the hedge as an opportunity - once you have cleared the space you could invest in something a bit grander than the Ash.    How about a lovely Cotinus

I would never plant a clematis in a pot.  I think they do better in the ground, planted deeply with roots always in shade.

I am watching out for the elephant head hawk moth now - seen during June in the evenings mostly. -- Introduced  several years ago to my patch as caterpillars.

And then my tree fell down..

Our Ash trees are having a bad time right now with "Ash die back"  many in our village look as if they are dying - it seems that some are showing signs of recovery, but most look very sad.  The weight of the enormous amount of ivy on your tree certainly did not help it

Hedge Plant

All of the weigelas are good for hedging, but they are a bit bare in the winter months, that is why I try to mix hedging plants to get something happening in every season
