Sage question

for the sake of the plant I'd take the whole stem. In the second photo it looks  like there's healthy growth at the bottom. Cut just above that

it's not getting enough light but could be too much water as well. They're plants that grow naturally in dry sunny places. I'd cut off the long growth and use it.

You can plant out from pots any time, Tease out the roots a bit to give them a start, don't let them dry out but don't drown them.

Enchanter's Nightshade, Circaea lutetiana, an invasive little plant but so pretty I imported it into my garden against the advice of the donor. It's still with me 2 houses and 25 years later

Get rid of it, it will never be a shapely tree once it's as you describe. They're not particularly shapely in maturity anyway due to the thick trunk of the rootstock plant being out of proportion with the delicate branches of the grafted part.

A climber through a dead/dying tree look just like a climber through a dead tree for a few years til the tree rots and falls over.

A pergola for the rose would be a better course

It doesn't smell for long, just til it's been fertilised.

Anyone know what this plant might be?
