Hi, no buds since i've had it, planted into the ground and bought it as a small plant from a local nursery, have added a pic to give you an idea of its location etc.
Thanks for your advice,

They can take a year or so to settle in, also it may be a seedling so not ready to flower yet. Mine gets hacked mercilously (it's growing along the fence in the alleyway) and flowers a lot. Once it gets going there will be no stopping it. I had one given to me in a small pot which I stood in the greenhouse against the wall, couldn't think what to do with it (I already had the alleyway!) eventually thought I'd give it to the charity plant sale, but when I picked it up it had rooted throught he bottom of the pot into the gap between the concrete and the wall.It regrows from this crack every year!!
