Bought a well established Budlelia today for a good price. I'ts over a metre tall but is quite bushy at the bottom and has side shoots coming off the main stem. It's still got it's dried flowers on it

Got a good place for it, really want it to well next year, when the best time to prune it?

Thanks

It's a shame things aren't working, Cltl and F5 makes no difference, neither does clearing one's history...........think I'm going to leave it for now and come back in a few days to see if things have improved...........I might be talking to myself, thats ok, I'm the one person that makes sense to me

Still got problems with Forum

wee-pond

I have a tiny pond more like a ditch........... it been here for a couple of years and I don't know how they do it but toads arrived quickly.

Don't know if they came in with some smelly compost or they found their way in? The cats have brought some in (alive) so have just popped them in there. I don't see the toads very often but every few months I catch a glimpse.  Saw one in the flower beds a few months ago I go along with the theory that adding some water is the best way to increase the diversity of wildlife.

My ditch is in the worst probably place, under 2 beech trees, I do try and get some netting over it in the Autumn, other than that I leave it alone........it's probably got a bit of leak so in the summer months I do top it up a bit

I have made sure that there are steps to the water entrance so that any creature can find a way out

Perennials planting time

Hi, if your plants are of a good size I think now is a great time to plant out. The soil is warm and the weather is still mild, great for putting on roots in the ground for next year
