Mike  --  Actually, I haven't noticed many SDB or MDB bloomouts, but what I do see is many more blooms on single fans than with TBs.  The single fan just makes me antsy, particularly when so many of my first-year SDBs are sending up 5 or more stalks.  (I've counted as many as 9, but can't afford the time to count them all.)  I'll make a point of seeing whether this one puts out increase by the end of the season.
This is a strange season, with terrific bloom on first-year seedlings of all sizes, great increase on most of them, as well, but the TBS growing extremely tall with low bud count.
Also, I'm getting less than 50% germination overall, whereas I normally get near 70%.  It's probably a blessing, since space is chronically short here, but it also means that some crosses are giving less than 10%.  
All of the above follows a year of extreme drought, then a mild winter with little moisture until just recently.  (The seed pots were kept watered, though.) --  Griff

Hey Griff (and everyone else) it seems like SDBs and MDBs are much more prone to bloomout here.  We usually don't have too many TB bloomouts but many in the SDBs.  Has anyone else noticed this or is just climatic?
