Good Afternoon Gardeners,

Could you take a look and help me ID these plants in my new garden please...?

1, I think maybe a currant of some type, it's rather vigorous and I'd like to cut it back quite a lot

2 - sightly sad looking climber on a trellis



Thank you! :smiley:

    I am not too sure regarding the first and last plants, however the 3rd. looks like a climbing cotoneaster and the 2nd is a clematis - the flowers will help to be able to identify which one Melanie

    Picture 1 looks like a blackcurrant plant. Picture 3 looks like Cotoneaster Horizontalis, and picture 4 looks like Photinia shrub.

    2 looks like it could be a Passion Flower , it’s hasn’t  got stalks like Clematis.

    Agree with Hostafan for 2 - mine also similarly damaged by the cold snap.  Cut the dead bits back to just above a bud, shoot or leaf.  They are very untidy growers!
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Great, thanks! 

    Obviously I'll be able to tell more when the berries are fully formed on the ribes, but will they be edible - or perhaps not?
