No - it was here when we came, Nannym. It isn't a true climber - it needs support, and mine is wired onto a wall, facing SW. It does need to face south or west, as it can be affected by cold. It's a very beautiful 'climber' though!

Good luck if you decide to get one!

Yes, you should be able to get one quite easily. I've seen them at most Garden Centres.

Don't ever worry about asking questions - how are you to learn if you don't?? :-)
