Dont give up on them, I have loads of tiny perenials all coming up for next year, they are sitting on the shelves of the plastic grenhouse, but I will give them some protection in the winter and plant out next Spring.

Maybe it will come good then. Its still a bit early given that its flowered its little socks off all year, perhaps it is just having a rest. 

If its a good plant, the greenery alone is nice.

Rubbish compost

I wouldnt ever use grow bags, any make. While you fiddling about with loosening thier soil amd putting pots on top, you may as well grow them in buckets in the first place,  You make a good mix of compost,  rotted manure and some garden soil for firmness.

Grow bags are not deep enough on their own, best thing if you must use them is to cut then in half and stand on their ends.(the bags, not you!)
