Just bringing my tree back to the top of the pile as there seem to be a lot of folk around this evening! Any ideas?

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 !!

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

Gardening glove suggestions?

Gold leaf ones for thorns - worth the money esp. when I cut my hawthorn hedge. Wish I had bought them years ago.
