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.

URGENT Monkey puzzle advise needed!

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?
