Pruning Buddleia

You can certainly cut off dead branches, that's always a good plan. I'd shorten some branches as well if it looks as though it needs it but I wouldn't do one of those major cutting back jobs where you take everything back to a couple of foot tall

Thymes, I've been observing the bees on mine. They like the dark purply red best, followed by the light mauve and the white not at all. I don't like the white either, I won't keep that for next year.

Avoid double flowers WG, there's nothing there for insects

They do Edd. The yellow species, variegated or other cultivar, always have a squashed up look to them which Melanie's hasn't got

It looks as though it should be mauve doesn't it. I hope it is, not sure if I like the yellow.

Sorry Edd, if that's one of yours

ross, sorry you haven't had any replies. You'll probably find  someone on an internet search but we're all so widespread it's unlikely that anyone will come up with a local designer

Good luck

Escallonia 'Apple Blossom' - few flowers

I think it would be worth trying a good hard prune and feed before you decide it's had its day Calendula.

A few more clues please Melanie. I've no idea of the size or the shape of the plant. Is it a shrub? Is it evergreen?

I'm sure it will flower, it's what plants do.

The leaves would help. so many flowers look much the same in isolation
