as nutculet  says you wont get something to flower all through the seasons so you need to plant things that will flower at different times and have a good flowering. My arch has 3 different clematis and a rose plus kiwi .

you can re -pot them with fresh compost and make sure no lily beetles around ,(garlic grown in the same pot or spray  will deter the blighters) and put now into shed for winter that's what I do .
