they do not take kindly to being pruned and it will have to be a self fertilizing or you will need two.They like a sheltered spot and I know they will take off and some chopping will be needed but for the first while just train it along ,

the roses will form on other stems,It does seem  awful but thats how it works and this time of year it will not flower again.but next year when you do this they will grow new flowers ,you will have wait a little while but they will appear ,if you dont you will have only one showing and the bush will become straggly.

Best plants for creating privacy?

I  think pyracanthia is a good one ,I have one in the front of my house next to a wall and it is giving privacy and good colour as well as preventing unwanted visitors.

What's happening in my garden!

Well where to start! It is that time of year when things start to think about dying back and thats most likely why they are looking poorly or pot plants need to be kept watered and deadheading.Things eating your buddlia are the offspring of the butterflies you have been watching dont worry to much its time for things to go into winter mode .

The flowers do start with a tinge of orange/pink then to white ,then as they fade they go to spotti pink to dying brown.You need to keep dead heading to keep it going but this time of year it will be going into dormant mode.During flowering peroid you can keep dead heading if not to big or leave and then prune back for a second show,which is what I do.

I try to keep mine over winter in the shed or sun room.I pot them and water very little.some will survie others not but its worth the try.
