Looks like they have them in the RHS online shop - 4.99 a plant.

i have  never seen the yellow ones before - they look impressive. I grow the c. montana and they are trouble free

If the top foliage is alright they are definitely still alive - i expect they will come back fine next year - and then you can keep on top of the feeding - that will give you more flowers too

We have just removed a L- hedge - and had the stumps ground out.  Our next step will be to dig in as much horse manure as we can this autumn and next spring - hope that will do the trick. The plan is to grow veg there eventually.
