i don't class this as a weed, I grow it from seeds purposely for the bees. 

To early to prune Buddlias and Roses ?

Same here as Frank, hydrangeas the same, do them early and frost will have the top leaf buds, send them black and you have to do them all over again done to the next bud. 

You don't gain anything by pruning early.

I always wonder at what stage you stop potting on and put them in the ground.

if you put it straight into the ground it's in a half acre diameter pot Instantly.

Gosh Andrew, you drink a lot of tea, mulching those with your tea bags will be a job for the year.

nice in the cages, you wont get any cats on those. 

Pinching out growing tips

I have just googled the Pritchard, it is quite spikey. As it's campanula it will just all shoot out from the bottom in the spring won't it? 

They don't want to be in the house though.

Are you sure they are campanula, which type, they look like verbena bonariensis.

if they are verbena you can cut then right down.they look woody for campanula, but then I don't know all the different types.
