    Thank you for having me and I had some really good help already in here. love the fact that this is an active forum (compared to others that I have googled).

    I am by no means an expert gardener, but since I "finished rebuilding" my garden (still had the same fence panels from year of construction 1953), I found myself buying flowers and thinking "what else can I put/do in here".
    This is where I probably will need your knowledge :)

      Those original fence panels must have been well looked after to last 68 years :SUNsmile:

        I dont know the name of the plant that was covering it, but at the same time, it was what was holding it together :) that and the bricks rooted to concrete with steel rods.. needless to say that the panels came down like paper but the bricks, almost needed a bulldozer lol
