Hi,  (1st pic)I think these are geranium rozanne what do you think. (2nd pic) Also would love suggestions for a climber to grow up this old Berberris. Thanks Area is South facing and quite sheltered

    Yes those look like G. Roxanne. 

    As for a climber ... what else have you got growing nearby, what’s the soil like and when do you want the most colour?

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Think I'd go for a clematis but there is loads of choice. Group 3 is usually easy, quite tough, just chop it down every year late winter/early spring. Look up viticella.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    Soil is clay ( not heavy ). There's hebe heartbreaker and a green leaved hebe with pinky/lilac flowers (forgotton name)  also a Skimmia and a couple of laurels. In between the shrubs there's Campanula white clips and Geranium Rozanne. Ideally I would like flowers as long as possible 😊 but mainly spring/summer and something self clinging. I do love honeysuckle but think they might be too vigorous I dont want to swamp the berberis frame. Thanks

    I'd go for a Clematis texensis variety; they flower at the back end of summer and are not too big.
