Is there any healthy growth for a cutting or two?
I have a multi-stemmed Amelanchier ... is yours single stemmed? Could you/would you coppice it?
Me too ......
So do I ..... but hey ho, such is life .............. not many people can send a troupe of wonderful gardeners to do their research and eat their cakes for them

No .... cultivate more patience
Have they been fed and watered?
You could have some pots with species tulips in for the spring, and then swap them for pots of colourful summer bedding.
Fairy to quote a friend of mine, the problem is, no-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !
Which way does it face? How much sun does it get?
I get what you're saying but a rose only gives colour for a couple of months a year ... the rest of the time all you'll see is wall and bare stems .......... for me it would depend on how much I looked at that wall in the rest of the year ... what about something colourful in containers in front of the wall for the summer?
I do hope you all have a lovely time ... remember you've got to be my eyes so have a good look at that long herbaceous bed for me
