oh, sorry David, I didn't know that.

 

That's okay, Sandy  I just wanted to illustrate the fact they are as tough as old boots & don't need any special care.

ok, I'll get a photo of it in the daylight, its really big, so I think taking it too far back may be too much as welsh onion says. I've no idea what variety it is...photo coming over the weekend. Thank you for your expertise.

 

They grow in brick rubble on derelict sites, railway embankments, gaps in walls, through tarmac pavements etc.....can't really make a case for TLC.

Don't worry, DD...didn't intend to get technical, promise.  The reason I asked is because while the foreground is in focus, the background is out of focus, this would indicate that the camera is set on auto. For both the foreground and background to be in focus a smaller aperture (maybe f16) would need to be used.

Most peeps are happy to use their cameras in auto.....still an excellent shot though.

Pruning a Budlea Tree??

Buddleias are thug plants/bushes and thus virtually indestructible. Having said that if a pruning regime were called for, I would suggest cutting everything back by half in the autumn and down to 18 inches above the ground in the spring.

They flower on the current year's growth, hence cutting back to 18 inches above ground avoids all the flowers growing on the top of the bush.

Whatever happened to the word 'riddle'...a 'sieve' puts me in mind of a kitchen implement.

Sieve/Riddle, I make my own by making a square box from pieces of 3'' x 1" timber (or whatever is at hand) and covering it with plasterers screed, then fix with small fencing staples.

Another nice shot from you DD....do you mind me asking if your camera is set to 'auto'?
