If you can find some now they'll probably be reduced in price, best sort. I've got lots of bulbs that I bought very late in the season.

They're still coming up every year

They won't keep Nick, plant them.

We have a lot of LBJs, I have got the reed buntings sorted now but there are still some to go.

Interestingly, LBJs also turn up in the moth traps through the summer

I think we get used to things flowering as soon as we get them and forget that shrubs are several years old before we buy them in a GC. If you grow from seed all that waiting is in your time, not the growers'. I expect they'll get round to it soon as Edd says. Watch out for the little female flowers, that's where the nuts grow.

Anyone had health problems after pruning Buddleia?

Phlomis fruticosa and Viburnum rhytidiphyllum do this to me, in the shredding of branches it's even worse. I think it's little bits causing irritation, not an allergy or a poisoning
