Gt Burnet is A Good Thing in my opinion - especially in wildlife gardens - it could do with some support - hazel twigs or the like - it can spread a bit if it's happy but shouldn't be too hard to keep in check.

Don't know about the other - hopefully you'll get some flowers soon and that will give us more clues ....

Could be an air ambulance - they come in different colours it seems.

I've come indoors for a drink and something to eat - I was in the garden and I inadvertently swallowed a fly - OH is making jokes about frogs

Hi Lee 

Could you post some pics of the tree and the areas with the problems - to post a pic on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions to upload a photo - afraid it doesn't work for phones, yet.

More mystery plants!

Well, the first one is your elusive poppy 

The second two ........ the one at the back looks a bit like Sanguisorba officinalis - Gt Burnet 

and the one at the front looks like a legume of some sort, possibly a vetch  of some sort - are the larger green structures seed pods or flower buds?

What does everyone else think?

I don't know which particular rose this is, but I suggest you look at this site  which has lots of information on standard roses and general rose care.  

I would prepare a good site and plant it into the ground.  It may benefit from a cane or stake.

It looks as if there's a label on the stem - is it legible?  Does it give the variety name?

It sounds to me like a pollination problem - hopefully it will improve as the season progresses - or you could try hand pollinating. 

Info here 

Good luck
