Anyone had health problems after pruning Buddleia?

Posted: 02/10/2016 at 22:16

I found the worse one was Phlomis fruticosa. I had to shred it with goggles on and and a scarf over my mouth. Please don't laugh at the thought. I also had ear muffs on because the shredder is noisy.

I dug it out and replaced it with  a buddleja.

Musa Basjoo -plant out?

I would use  a plastic pot, it will probably have to be sacrificed as the plant grows. Pot it a couple of inches bigger than it is now. It need to be frost free over winter. If you have no conservatory or greenhouse, cut the leaves off in November, Wrap the top in fleece and keep up against a wall.

I think the purple one is Verbena bonariensis. Propagate from seed or  take cuttings from unflowered side shoots.
