It looks like a very healthy plant to me. I don't know what they are but |I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Check the roots for vine weevil grubs - white body, brown head. There is another buddleias thread with a similar problem - check it out.

Cut back on the watering, they like to be dry.

Well done. Now get down to GC/DIY store tomorrow and buy some vine weevil killer. You make it up in a watering can and water it on the pot. Do it on all the pots you have as the little blighters get everywhere. This will protect your pots for the next couple of months  - follow the directions on the container for repeat drenching etc and your blue chip will hopefully be chipper again!

I would lift some soil and inspect the roots of your plant. If you find soft white bodied grubs with brown heads, then you have vine weevil. If not? check the state of the roots to see if overwatering is the problem. Let us know what this search reveals if anything and then we'll see what to advise next...

hedgehogs

Posted: 15/08/2013 at 22:56

Just had my RHS wild in the garden August email through saying it was a good time to start feeding hedgehogs as the young ones are about. Haven't seen a hedgehog in our garden for 16 years but as my son had built a house for them out of old wood so I thought I would give it a go. In Tescos (of all places)by chance I saw a bag of hedgehog food and on a whim purchased it......and would you Adam and Eve it saw my first hedgehog this evening!!! Talk about coincidence. We immediately opened the food and put it near the base of the hedge where we had seen him/her. Bold as brass the hedgehog came out and started eating. We are absolutely thrilled and it looks as though hedgehog food is going on my shopping list
