I'm assuming they were 2 yr old. Was wondering if they were trying to fob you off with just a 1 yr old plant. Problem is the 9cm pot restricts the growth and they become difficult to grow new thick branches from the stem.
I bought 10 from scotsplantdirect. 7 growing great, out the other three, pretty small and leggy but one has grown a new thick stem that have grown 3 foot this year, one looks like someone sat on it and no idea whats happening with the last one, hardly any new growth. All had flowers but barely two or three, no worries there with yours.
Feed with eracious feed in Spring and after harvest, they have another spurt of growth after harvest.(tho you don't know when harvest is as you don't have flowers, you can do it with the Bluecrop, not sure with the other two).
I would normally recommend to nip the tip of the new growth to encourage new branches, but with only 7 inches grown I don't really know.
Any chance of uploading a pic up?
