How far away from the wall do you plant them? Could you be planting them too close? The wall could be sucking up some moisture as well as casting a rain shadow. Clematis likes to have it's roots in the shade, it might also need some rotted cow manure in there.

I don't know what the central plant in your 1st picture is, but I can see nettles and creeping buttercup (weeds) and possibly a leaf of a sedum. In the 2nd pic the plant with pink bobbles is a weed. 3rd pic I'm not sure looks like a sow thistle at the top but not at the bottom. 4th pic I think is a Geum, surrounded by rose bay willow herb, and more creeping buttercup. Also some Aquilegia seedlings I think
