Hope you have a wonderful day. I think anyone who opens their garden to the public is very brave. Gardens are so personal and some people can have very strong feelings on particular styles and express their opinions. Some people are also very light fingered when it comes to a cutting or too! 

However, the majority of us are only too pleased to enjoy a lovely garden such as yours Bizzie Lizzie appreciate and admire the hard work that has gone into it; enjoy your space with a cup cake and cup of tea for the afternoon leaving only with refreshed enthusiasm, inspiration and a full tum!  

Good luck and I hope you raise pots of money  

Foxes

Fox cubs are out and about and probably smell the fertiliser you put around the new plants thinking it was food. Blood, fish, bone etc. As the smell diminishes and they realise there is nothing worth digging for, they will probably stop. Laying twigs/branches with thorns/prickles on around the plants will deter them -eg. holly or wire mesh laid across the soil or just under it - it doesn't look very attactive might help them move on too.

Prune a Buddleja

Be brave Dave! Buddleias are very difcult to kill and they will appreciate your braveness. If you do it asap as per the advice above you will avoid the wind snapping bits off or at worst splitting the stem - more heartache for you in the long run. You can do it !!

first butterfly seen today

I think it looks like a Holly Blue. The underwing is not like a common blue. Good shots! Is it sitting on a Nandina?
