Check out gc prices. I notice this year their prices have risen again. I received a top quality plant in 2 litre pot for ??8 50 including next day delivery. Had I ordered more plants it would have been even more exonomical.

Your campanula does not retain foliage from year to year Hefty.,, lose the lot in autumn for it to start again in spring.
Your lemon verbena, being a shrub, will retain cut your verbena in spring to where new shoots appear

Lyn, plants grow better when small when put in small pots. Once they reach certain size they grow better in the ground. That "half acre diameter pot" would simply swamp a tiny smilie I'm afraid!

I would cut it all down to almost the base.  Perennials so they will respond. 

There seems to be quite a few growing perennials in too warm conditions.  They really wont like it.  A cold gh is fine but no heat.  This is when root growth is more important and this will be taking place even if we can't see it. A good root system will produce a good plant
