Too many examples I could give but I've never tolerated rudeness or disrespect from anyone let alone sales people.

Hiya thomas

cut that flowering stem back to the ground or to where there might be another flower shoot on that stem.

Yes,it will flower again next is hardy and flower for a few years yet. 

Lupins are pretty easy really...just watch out for snails and slugs

Short flowering season for my buddleja's

For me, buddleias have been flowering for weeks. Such a small island yet such variations but buddleias anywhere should be flwering by now.  September soon.  When do you expect them to flower folks?

Peanuts, surprised esp as you dead headed.  Many don't think about deadheading buddleias for some reason but, for me, it helps, prolong flowering.  Perhaps they needed deadheading when you were on holiday

Not great customer service Lou

at least you spoke up.  That was great. 

it happens. My young niece, 21, is sometimes not given the respect she deserves because of her age and I have made my feelings known. I always get better service and  "respect" ....maybe for being a male?
