OK thanks guys,

Buddleja 'Buzz' revisited

Posted: 26/11/2013 at 19:47

As already mentioned in a recent post, I bought three buddleja 'buzz' plug plants last spring. The grew like bamboo and flowered. I successfully took cuttings and they are about 8in high, giving me the 'V' sign. I fear they are going to grow 'leggy' too.

How do I get them nice and bushy like the one on page 120 in Decembers GW mag?

Hi David

If you have December copy of GW, go to page 94. Brilliant article on Bumblebees

Thanks Brumbull, I think your right about the seals, they do look a bit ropey.
Our local GC is very good at stocking all sorts of things at least I know what to look for

Thanks Dove, do I just put them a few cm below the ground and let them get on with it?

Brilliant Brumbull, I like it. Reminds of the gag,

Two goldfish in a tank, one turns to the other and says, 'How do you drive this thing?'

I have some Norway Maple seeds picked up from the local park. I have just read in December GW that this is the month to plant tree seeds. Do I need to soak them first? and will normal Mufti-purpose compost do?
