Hi all. I've never grown wallflowers before and have planted some bare root. They're looking a bit sad, as I expected, and I know they will perk up, but should I prune back a bit before first frosts ? Any advice lovely gardening folk ?

I grew some wallflowers from seed last spring, they are in the ground now and in bloom ! Never go back to buying those sorry looking bare rooted things !! By the way the whole pack came up for 40p packet of seeds in Aldi !!

Are they particularly attractive to slugs/snails ? Something is shredding them !!!
