Hi, just pulled out a patchy old privet hedge from my garden and discovered this climber in amongst it. It's quite spindly but looks like it's been there for a long time so decided to leave it in for now. I can't see any sign of flowers at the moment but will be keeping a close eye on it. Has anyone any idea what it might be,

FYI I'm in London UK

Cheers
Dave

Looks like a rose, could be a climber if it behaves itself or a rambler if it takes off, now that it is getting more sun, it should bloom. train it horizontally to the fence, that helps it to set bud.

Thanks very much Elaine, I did wonder if it might be a rose. There are no thorns so that probably narrows down the species. Will keep my fingers crossed and wait for some flowers, if you're right I'll be very happy with that!

I am familiar with the rambler called Vielchen bleu, it has no thorns, is lavender in color and is sweetly fragrant.
