Buddleia alternifolia, lovely scent

Growth follows a good prune Jo. It was rather leggy and tied to a cane when I bought it. I thought a good prune might start multiple stems growing.

Maybe after the next flowering

Wait a minute Jo, I'd forgotten all about it til mentioned here

I'll brave the wind and go see

 

It's cold and windy out there but bright and sunny.

The ribes hasn't put on much new growth, I'm sure it would have appreciated a bucket of water occasionally through the summer, but full of healthy looking flower buds

R. laurifolium is more of a ground cover than an upright shrub unless it has help. I've seen it trained up a wall but needs fixing. Lovely in winter, I must make sure mine hasn't disappeared due to neglect during the summer. I only planted it in the spring. Meant to cut it back but forgot

Saw some when we went to Anglesey Abbey Dove

In a seed tray I think wash out in heavy rain would be a bigger problem than cold.

Planting Viburnum × bodnantense Dawn, WHEN?

I think container grown plants can be planted more or less any time.

A good nursery will only send out a bare rooted plant at the appropriate time
