Sorry artjak, it's definitely fennel. Seed heads on top photo and new foliage growing at base of plant in the second photo confirm it.

pergola - wisteria or clematis?

I have a thornless rose - Mortimer Sackler ( terrible name, lovely rose) and a clematis - The President on my arch. The rose is no bother I just tie it in and prune lightly in early spring - no thorns. there are quite a few available. The clematis also gets cut down in early spring and is covered with blooms all summer.

Thanks. I would have missed it too. Had to reach for the subtitiles button when the sound disappeared half way through - very annoying! Great to have Monty and Nigel back.
