Buddleja - patio size

Posted: 04/08/2013 at 10:07

My buddliea buzz is in a pot in the corner of my front garden, the main root has gone through the pot into the soil,  This year it's just over 5ft tall 4ft wide with lots of flowers.

So i would say they grow a bit larger planted in the ground.

Yes i think it will be ok to overwinter in pots.When planted out next spring you should get nice strong plants.

I haven't seen froglets like that for years Aliesh, I used to worry about mowing the grass. Good excuse not to

Yes it reminds me of when i was a child, when it was raining we used to collect tiny frogs from the edge of the road kerbs and put them in a bucket. Not brave enough to do it now!

In our wild garden where i have my allotment there are lots of little froglets hopping about. If i water the ground they all appear there must be hundreds of them  it's hard not to stand on them. There is a small lodge at the top of our land i think they must have come from there. Has anyone else got lots of froglets?

I have the gaint one for the first time this year my late father in law planted them.

I was also wondering if they should be cut down. I thought perhaps the birds may eat the seeds, does anyone know if they do? ITs a great plant if you have the space!
