Advice on what to grow at bottom of garden to attract birds

Hi, I'm looking for an idea of what to grow up against this back fence where the wheelbarrow is.  The ground beneath the stones is concrete so i'd have to use a planter I guess?  Anyway, something nice and bushy that would be a safe place for birds to hang out, and also provide somewhat of a privacy screen from the properties at the rear.  This spot gets full sun all day.

    IF YOU COULD WHACK A CRACK IN THE CONCRETE, BUDDLEIA BUSHES WOULD BE VERY HAPPY THERE.

  • I'm inclined to agree with Pansyface,l found some Buddlea growing in a disused granite place,they were growing up through large broken tombstones,in awful ground.l dug them up as best I could,and they've done really well,they would look good at the end of your garden,nice for the bees and butterflies too. Good luck
