I grew Graham Thomas up the wall of my single storey studio in a previous garden - it works really well as a short climber and indeed David Austin recommend it for that purpose https://www.davidaustinroses.com/english/Showrose.asp?Showr=426

What about some annual climbers - you can have different ones each year - sweet peas one year, Black Eyed Susie the next, and then Morning Glories - that'd fit in really well with the cottage garden theme

I might take one more meal's worth, then I won't pick any more this year, so that the crown can build up for next year

Panda, glad you've had a good day

Yes - Himalayan balsam - I lived next door to someone who grew a plant - it's all over the street now - it catapults it 's seeds with a sort of coiled spring contraption - they catapult them over high fences and walls.  Total nuisance 

Plant identification please

I've seen it growing in Devon and Cornwall - you've got it spot on Nut
