It's climbing rose Mme Alfred Carrière growing over a pillar about 2 1/2 metres tall that forms an arch with another pillar and a beam over some stone steps.

That was the one I thought it could be. It is a trailing variety. Now look it up and see if it's like yours. It isn't frost hardy, so you would have to bring it indoors in winter. It will lose it's leaves in winter.

Pruning

As it gets more mature even if you prune it after flowering, it will be over 6 feet tall.

Runners on new strawberry plants

Good answer from No expert, sounds like a Strawberry expert! Don't let them grow runners until they are nearly ready to replace, then you can pot up the rooted runners. But when young they need to put their energy into growing good roots and making strawberries.

Do you have a photo? This is a site with masses of photos that you can enlarge by clicking on them. It will take a bit of time, but you can compare the flowers with yours and look up the results on Google.

MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 28/09/2013 at 10:27

Morning all. Raining, but needed it as it's been a warm dry week. Runner beans have at last decided to do something and are producing like mad.

Hope you sleep well enough to enjoy Malvern, Matty. Enjoy your visiting, Dove.

My garden is looking pretty at the moment after a dull period, Michaelmas daisies, sedum, rudbeckia, autumn anemones etc, even roses. Photo on Garden Gallery.

Dahlias grown from seed or cuttings do eventually grow tubers.
