Clematis for a dry bank

They don't like being dry,unless you are going to water them every day and the toughest would be a montania but I think its not the right spot.

don't over water and water only when dry and yes I have grown them from seed and they are very good to keep going by picking the leaves regularly (when in the garden).

Rose problems

looks like it could do with pruning those dead bits out and cut back and some well rotted horse manure and good watering but it must be said that some old roses have gone beyond there sell by date and to that I would say take some cuttings.
