You might get them to flower next year but, if they gone long and lanky, I'd just pull them out.

I've always been told that wallflowers are biennials... you sow them one year and get the flowers the next.
If I'm correct there is no purpose in doing anything other than pulling them out.

Wall flowers also cause club root so I was informed by other gardeners on an allotment site.

Gosh I hadn't thought of that Morgana but as they are members of the cruciferae family then of course they could get clubroot!

Suz, don't panic about clubroot. If you've grown them from seed in your soil and know there's not been clubroot there, you'll be OK. If you bought young plants, it's a bit of a risk - ?
They are great flowers, I love the scent.
