Wonderful weather but time moves on! Please can someone kindly tell me how to decrease the height and garth of my wonderful buddleia davidi that has outgrown its space? I actually have three and they have become like small trees. There is thick trunk like stem near the ground and to about 3 ft. I am thinking of cutting some 'trunk' back to decrease the garth but can I cut right down almost to the earth (not quite!) and will this help to produce smaller, more compact buddleias? I hope so!
Also I have a small 'wild type' ballerina pink rose, one of a number, which I meant to transplant a foot to fit in with the rest of the design, but did not get around to it. Is it too late? Two others were moved without problem last year but not at this time. The roses have some beginning leaves and buds. I have another, which only has one or two and I could transplant that one instead.
Thank you so much!
