Lovely Amy, I think this is the one I bought in 2018. I’m hoping it will be as floriferous as yours! I’ve lots of buds ready to open.

Thank you I'm guessing this must be quite old ,it grows all along one side of the garage

This one does need cutting back so it could be 6 to 8 years as mine was as long as this Iit yook about 6 years withnout pruning Amy the main stem on mine was thick and woody .

Its lovely to have such a display that hides the garage.

The main stem is very thick and woody 3p ,this is in the sun for most of the day Sbg probably helps in making it flower earlier ...

I meant to say it does nt need cutting back like others so having a woody stem its a good age.

Thanks Amy and Dawn, I’m pleased for the info too. I’ve planted one in the garden about a year and a half ago. It has buds in ready to pop. I was in a dilemma in regards to managing it.

Thanks Dd, I was thinking this when everyone gave me some feedback. I thought, right, where shall I encourage it to go? Anyway, it’ll go along the fence and up and right along mixing with some Ivy, hopefully!
