Hello Mobee. Wallflowers are only biennials, so these are about to give up soon really. You can plant seeds again now to enjoy vigorous new plants next Spring. I seem to have several hundred, so if you'd like some send me yr address in a PM.
They do have a wonderful scent don't they.

Hi Mobee, are you talking about perennial wallflowers? which could be cut back, mulched up and fed with liquid manure to produce new growth and flowers.

ooh, that's true!
Mobee, either post a photo for someone here to ID yr wallflowers to see what type they are, or do you still have their name on a label maybe?
