If you must use washing-up liquid, just a few drops in a bucket of water. The proper stuff to be using is horticultural soft soap, to be honest.

If you want to zap your aphids in an organic way, make up an extremely effective insecticidal spray from rhubarb leaves & water....this uses the oxalic poison present in the rhubarb leaves.

Kills caterpillars and other nasties too.

I agree, Salino....way past my bed time last time I looked at it.

I've just been googling and don't think it comes as a climber either so that's out too. There was another that you have (I think) a well known one David but has a stronger scent?

 

Who's a clever girl.....Albertine!

I have a RHS A-Z plant finder and have looked at likely candidates without luck....maybe it's an old Victorian variety.

Mine is Many Happy Returns but not a climber, the petals go lighter as yours do.
