I hope someone can help us with this,

The problem is its growing all over my raised veg beds, every day i have to go and pick it all out, and its starting to grow over the grass, is there anyway of getting rid of this stuff, it looks a bit like ivy and grows so so fast.

Any help thanks.

Know i said i like the idea of the second one but have just looked both of them up, and the red robin wins, it looks fantastic.

The second sound perfect as the top of my garden is raised a bit and does get quite dry, i will do my homework on these two right now, thanks for that.

 for someone like me (new to gardening) getting a couple of names to look at is a big help. Thanks

hello, i have a long straight fence line in my garden that i would love to cover quite cheaply, i was thinking of a few bushes along the length but not sure which are fast growing or bushy enough, any advice would be a big help, the length of run is 25 meters.
