LittleMissSunshine, I you stay around you will learn the ways of this particular poster. As I say above, it is maybe a mistake to encourage some posters by replying!

You cannot cut anything back beyond the boundary between you and your neighbour. You can cut back to the boundary and not an inch more! So if the trees are entirely on your neighbour's land I would be very careful.

OK point taken. I think Dove has demonstrated a more usual variety.

Sorry, I really meant woody nightshade, if it is a nightshade. The solanum family is vast. And some of them are food plants!

New potatoes, French beans, herbs and flowers. Grow things you love. Don't bother with vegetables which are better grown by the professionals and are cheap to buy.

Most of the things - except for chemicals - we do in the garden have been around for a very long time. Do not dismiss them because they were doing them a long time ago.

YouTube is useful if you want visual demonstration, but I still like reference books which I can read and re-read.

Deadly Nightshade is very, very unlikely. It is quite a rarity. Found on chalk in places like quarries.

If in doubt access a decent picture of it in a book or on the internet. Bryony is the most likely culprit. The red berries are poisonous and it seeds everywhere.
