when should I prune Buddleia ?

I agree with jo4eyes, I do exactly the same. Mine are in two large pots and really do well. I have had them for about ten years and they flower every year.

After seeing these on Gardeners World last week, I would really love to have a go at growing these. They look so pretty and delicate dancing about in the breeze. I will be honest, I haven't really given them a lot of thought before, but after seeing them on GW I would love them in my garden.

Another busy day in the garden. Planted 30 Polyanthus plants into the garden today plus 20 Hyacinths. All my fuchias are now in, though I do bring some out during the day for the bees, they love them. I can't help it, I'm just a softy.

Am I posting too much?

I have spent all day in the garden. Put the bubble plastic up in the greenhouses today and I've put some of my fucshias in for the winter, pulled the sweetpeas down (they were rubbish this year). The weather has been really sunny today  and hopefully tomorrow will be the same so got to make the most of the good weather. Just spent the last couple of hours looking at seeds to buy (on ebay), some are really reasonably priced and not such high postage as T & M and Unwins either.

Talkback: Wildlife ponds

Hi Kate, I have only got a small container pond, and although it is small I do get quite a bit of wild life in there. The birds really love it and I have seen the odd dragon fly too. What I really would like is for frogs to move in.

Lavender plants

Posted: 03/10/2012 at 18:15

I have purchased the lavenders from T & M and I have left mine in the greenhouse. They were all stood in trays of water to keep them watered while I was away on holiday for nearly two weeks and they are growing really well. They are very strong looking plants and very bushy. I will be leaving them in the greenhouse over winter and plant them out next spring.

Talkback: A difficult year for wasps

Hi Kate, I haven't seen many wasps either this year. I did have one fly into the house and I caught it in a jar and let it go. They really do have a hard life, the poor things.
