Buddleja davidii

Morning ,in the tv guide came a cat from Spalding Plant and bulb co,in it there is a Buddleja davidii in the mag it looks stunning red purple and white all in one bush,it says its a butterfly bush, does anyone know who has the mag is it one plant or a clever photo trying to get me to buy 3 as they do say they sell 3 colours as well, is there a 3 coloured bud ,im thinking of it as a nice looking wildlife bush for the garden, obviously i know nothing about buddleja, i think it may be just a sad misleading picture hope not Alan

Designing a Garden Centre from scratch

Hi all this is such an interesting feature the answers of what people want should be sent to all G/C because some of them hav,nt a clue,as Dovefromanbove has told me im lucky to have one near me at Overstrand Norfolk its just what everybody's asking for and i Dont work their honest, its just so good i noted the prices were sometimes half the local ones here in Wales,its has got little cafe, and the family talk to you and value your custom and no silly stuff for sale.im looking forward to using it, and i alwauys try to do a deal with the prices of things in a friendly way and get free delevery when they are passing it works ,good for their bussiness and good for me Alan
