To the best of my knowledge, the product you seek simply doesn't exist.............if it did and was advertised as such - it would be a marketing disaster..........

The neighbour has no right whatever to grow anything including ivy up your fence

The fence is your property and its time the neighbour respected that ....ivy will damage the fence ultimately have you warned them they will be receiving a bill for the damage

Thanks alyson. I have to resort to doing that every year. I leave the resulting mass of ivy just lying in his garden, but it doesn't encourage him to do anything about it: his garden is such a mess anyway (he calls it natural; I call it a neglected wilderness).

Unfortunately this neighbour doesn't respect anything. He broke two of my fence panels earlier this year - just kicked them in for no apparent reason. He lives in his own reality where it's okay to trespass in my garden and on my roof; let the stench of his sewage flood into my pantry; repeatedly dislodge wet brickwork as I was building my front wall, and try to break into my house in the middle of the night. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Did I mention that he's a follower of the nineteenth century "mystic" and "educational pioneer" Rudolf Steiner.

Thanks arborlad, but why would it be a marketing disaster?
