You can dig them up with their soil and place in carrier bags, make some extra drain holes and put out of the way, 

I am a miserly old so and so I wouldnt use a pot in case i may need it for something else. You can also roll down the tops of used compost sacks.

Its not a bug its downy mildew, just avoid any seeds or plants with the word Walleriana. This is the strain that is suffering.

Full or partial sun?

I think gardening is a bit like having children.

The first one you need everything, new if you can and when you go out you take everthing but the kitchen sink.

When number 2 comes along, you make do with what you have

Days out involve a bag with some bits in.

When number 3 comes along, you're not so fussy, second hand will do,( i bought a cot for 50p for my grandson) days out are a couple of nappies and a pack of wet wipes,

so back to gardening, you need to do every right at first, just like the baby, buy all the gear, most of which you wont use, as the years go on its bung it in and hope for the best, plants, like children will mostly come good in the end, whatever.

Full or partial sun?

Do you know Michael, i take no notice of sun or not, I plant what i like, where i like, almost everything is lovely and grows well. my bergenia, pulmanaria, hostas and that bleeding heart thingy, cant remember the name, all shade plants grow beautifully in the full sun. I do have piccys to back that up.

Which variety of Buddleja would this be ?

I doubt it will flower this year if it was hacked down in autumn though. Wait for flowers next year then prune it a bit straight after. Would anyone agree?.

Plenty enough, the pulmanaria alone will be 2ft across before you know.

You can always pop a few annuals in just for this year
