    ok great thanks, im really not keen on Roses tho to be honest........might have to get rid.....

    its annoying as i hear Roses are hard to grow, this one is doing great while other plants i do like are struggling here n there......ah well image

    Yes, it's a rose - probably a climber - if you can train the canes outwards rather than upwards - as shown by Paul Zimmerman here you should get a lovely display of blooms. image

    Edited to add:  roses aren't hard to grow - whoever told you that?  Stuff and nonsense image and you've got one for free, probably £15 worth there. There aren't many things prettier than a climbing rose on an old brick wall.  Give it a go and see what happens image
