Oh wow, brilliant, thank you for the additional advice everyone. The Phyllis is still going...well, I would say 'strong', but it's not dead yet anyway! What little growth there is and nice and green, there's just not enough of it for my liking.
I've particularly taken your advice on board, Topbird, about planting near the fence. I suspect it may be a bit too close. I'll clear the plants around it a bit while it's still getting established. The one on the left is a massive catmint and I run the risk of my stupid cat getting high on it and snapping my precious branch if I'm not careful!
