FG work is 'interesting' at the moment - we had a poor Ofsted and important heads may roll . I'll have to watch the press and tv news as I'm away at son and daughter in law's for a couple of days.
I've seen them where I work in a village just north of Norwich - not that far away
I'd have said Foxgloves too.
Those little parley-like leaves might be larkspur?
I'm happy to be wrong Salino - it's a very long time since I was given that information by a professional rosegrower now no longer with us - things have probably changed since then
Of course, if it is a rambler rather than a true climber it is very likely to be on its own roots and not grafted.
Some suppliers sell climbing roses on their own rootstock too.
Hurrah!!! Amazing what some warmer weather will do
Now you have your work cut out ........................
It will happen and you'll love it - it is a gorgeous rose
Aren't they? What lovely looking plants and I can imagine all sorts of uses for them
Well done those volunteers I Used to volunteer at a youth club for severely disabled young people - great fun and totally exhausting I don't do it any more - I just got too tired.
And don't forget that climbing roses flower much more prolifically when their stems are trained as close to the horizontal as possible - http://paulzimmermanroses.com/gardening/training-roses/training-climbing-roses-on-a-trellis/
That should spur it into action
