How is it propelled other than by the happy owner doing an impersonation of a two year old on a tricycle?

Ferns generally like moisture and shade. If you want to have ferns, just provide those conditions for them and they will be happy.

Do you want it to be a screen all year round or would you mind being able to see through it in winter?

Lonicera nitida is a thug.

There is nothing wrong with yew. Children can be trained to leave things alone. Many many plants in the garden are potentially deadly - buttercups for one - they just need to be treated with respect.
