Welcome gerard

I'll make a start with honeysuckle and summer jasmine.  I have an archway with 2 honeysuckles on it and the scent from mid summer is intoxicating 

solanum alba is a favourite of mine too....white flowers from mkd summer into late autumn.  Vigorous and easy

clematis montana for white or pink spring flowers...grandiflora is scented too and a summer clematis like Ville de lyon would  give you red/maroon flowers all summer long 

Where are all the ranters?

get rid of whatever membrane you have....awful soil killing and ugly.  Membrane should be banned from garden borders 

dig over and remove everything you have there.  Clean plants thoroughly and pot them up whilst you attend to the sorting out.

a rockery only looks good if done properly....same sort of stone, partially in the soil, and all facing same way.   Otherwise re comsider your options Rickh.....what else would you like there?  A mound of soil and planted well and subsequently mulched well can look superb
