Euphorbia Lathyris, grows as a annual but seeds everywhere , 

supposed to be a mole reterant so I let some grow and pull the others up at seedling stage.

I have a ballerina climbing rose I live in the South West so if you live in this area message me and I can give you details of the supplier, but I suspect from your title you might be in Scotland.

They grow there own roses and ballerina they grow as a climber or a bush.

I don't want to put the details here as it might be classed as advertising.

It looks like a bab infestation of mealy bugs, lm pretty sure you can get a bug spray for this if you don't mind using chemicals.

The sooty mouldy is caused by aphids, it's the secretion ( poo ) from them you might also have ants in that area I think I read that ants milk aphids,so have a look and get rid of both.

It certainly doesn't look to heathy to me how close is it to the fence ?

If too close it could be thirsty like Dove says and a feed wouldn't harm it .

 does it get the sun in the day or is it in the shade ?

There is also a Vibernum called Vibernum opulus sterile which is just comming into flower, its known as the snowball bush. It might just be a little early to be in full bloom.

Can someone plz identify?

Didn't realise it was in a container either, does it have to be ?

It would do loads better in the ground.

set it free!!!
