Hello, after clearing a very overgrown garden in June, this was just a few twigs and leaves. In the last 10 weeks it has made good new growth but no flowers yet. I think it must once have been trained against a wall, and that is what I hope to do. It's about 2 ft tall right now. The leaves are small, a nice bright green, and seem to be grouped in three's. Many thanks.

Looks like jasminum nudiflorum or winter blooming jasmin, it is a lax shrub with yellow flowers all through winter, best trained on wires or cascading down a slope.

Thanks, I've looked that up and I think you're right. It's in the perfect spot and I'm looking forward to some winter colour.

It's a great winter shrub, really vibrant yellow shining through the winter gloom, and the flowers last ages. Pretty tough as well, so easily copes with cutting back quite hard, and easy to tie in against the wall
