Please can you identify this plant from my garden?

It seems to be growing well and looks healthy so, hopefully in the right spot on the sunny side of my garden. What can I expect it to do and when and what should I do to encourage it - train it up something?





it looks like it might be a honeysuckle, though i cant be certain. if it is train it up the fence.

Hi Alison, Yes, I'd definitely say a honeysuckle (Lonicera), though I can't tell you what variety. They get big and do like to romp. It looks like it has some sun shining on it in the picture as it has a shadow. That's good because they like a bit of sun. Train it up a trellis for support and it will gradually get going. Lovely flowers for you in summer, maybe even fragrant.
Best wishes, JONATHAN H.
