Climbing rose -  Zephirine Drouhin lovely perfume, thornless and happy even on a north wall see link for picture.  I have it and Madame Alfred Carriere and both are lovely. Also have hydrangea petiolaris but it has been slow to take off. They are all growing on my north or north west facing and I have 2 clematis on my Northeast facing walls. One is Clematis Comtesse de Bouchard but I can't remember what the other one is<span style="font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: xx-small;"><span style="font-size: 13px;"><span style="font-family: Times New Roman;"><span style="font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: xx-small;">.<span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: xx-small;">

Ok Many thanks I'll check for suckers and see if I can find any.  Do I need to keep the softwood cuttings I've taken in my greenhouse?

I have found that my lavender tended to get very woody after 3 - 4 years and I took lots of cuttings last year but I also tried "sinking" a couple of them into tall pots last year and am waiting to see how that worked.  It is supposed to stimulate new growth in the plants at the base... but I'm not fully convinced that it will work.

I have had to cut back a shrub in my mum's garden as her house is being sold and photographer needs a better view of the house for photos.  It flowers beautifully  - pink in summer but I don't know what it is...  I have taken some of the cuttings to my own garden to try and propagate them but not sure how to go about this. Can I put photos on to see if anyone can identify the plant?

I took rose cuttings about three years ago and they have grown but never flowered as yet.  Any ideas on what I can do to encourage my plants to flower this year?
