Not sure what I've done wrong

I had some last year and they were lovely. This year I received 10 of them and potted them up as soon as they arrived and kept them in the greenhouse until all danger of frost over. 7 of them are absolutely fine, looking healthy and happy, 3 just died. A 30% attrition rate seems a bit high and I wonder what I could have done to prevent it?

Super plants

These little Buddleia 'Dreaming Lavender' arrived as plug plants and I planted them up the same day. I am so pleased with them. They have flowered non-stop all summer long, and still going. I put them in hanging baskets, with fuscias. Although I think next season I will just have trailing greenery with them. The fuscias took over the baskets a bit! And the buddleia alone with just greenery will look glorious, with nothing to detract from the wonderful flowers produced. Will pot them out of the baskets before the weather gets too cold and put in a sheltered spot ready to plant up next year. They really are super plants.

Despite them being sold as plug plants I was very disappointed with the size and although they are healthy enough they are not suitable for putting into a mixed combination of container plants as shown because they could well become smothered and then possibly die. I am sure they will be fine for next year but not convinced for this year. I am waiting for a replacement which I hope will be bigger

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for your feedback, sorry to hear that you are disappointed with the plug plants. If you space them 10-15cm apart this should prevent them from being over shadowed by the other varieties. This is our second year of doing this variety in plug plant form and they were very sucessful last year and should develop flowers for you in their first year and then go on to establish more year after year."
