Oh, now you're asking! 20 to 30 years maybe? All the lovely leaves are above the 6 ft fence panel. I would love to prune it so it's not bare at the bottom, but i'm too scared to.

And its too late for this year!! so I have a few years to wait then as ours is about 4 years old roughly..

Just looked at where the flowers are:- on the wood produced last year at the nodes where new leaves are sprouting.
