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?
