They are lovely Marion I love the little streets with stone walls and cascading down the wall, I would love to live in Devon or Cornwall : )

Its a hedging plant, may be better in the ground, it just looks pot bound. Just knock of the dead leaves, and plant it out. they grow very big.

I do exactly the same as hostafan, they always come up next year, no problem, so mine are having a cull, along with primula denticulata, all heading for the compost, except the ones promised to a dear friend

I would say that if you only rescued in the autumn its still trying to make decent roots, it cant do that and flower as well, i would cut all off the buds  and wait until next year to let it flower, by then it will have a good root system.
