Hi everyone.

There is a vine in my new garden that has one last flower on it! I thought I would see if you lovely people could identify it for me and, if you know what it is, can you advise me if I can prune it back this time of year? It is starting to grow over the living room window sill. Here is a photo:

Thanks Flowerchild. So it's not actually a climbing plant? Wow - the previous owner of this house did a good job to train it onto the wall then. No wonder it's trying to grow outward.

Unfortunately the plant is not in a container, but it's in the most sheltered part of the garden, so fingers crossed it will last through the winter.

I'd heap some compost over the root run area as a modicum of protection - if it ever stops raining - you are a very lucky lady.  All I inherited when I moved here was a rampant Russian vine which had to be removed, and a lot of self seeded apple trees, which likewise had to be removed before I could have a grassy area (couldn't aspire to "lawn" with three children).
