Is it too late to plant out Buddleia davidii?

Posted: 27/10/2014 at 10:17

I am sure you will find both answers find favour, which I suspect means that there is no right answer. If it were me, I would plant it out.

Morning all, windy but warm here.

Nice to see you back fidget.

Have a good day everyone.

Children... I could probably only eat one.

Hi all. Been weeding all day, it does not take you to be away for long for them to take over. Many days hard labour ahead, but it is quite therapeutic.

Steak for tea, so  a nice bottle of red I think.

Hi any early risers, could not sleep, so I am up writing a to do list of jobs in the garden today. Unfortunately it looks more like a list for a small army to tackle over several weeks.

Found out yesterday that we have got some Rugby World Cup tickets which is great.

A bit dark for gardening at the moment, so I might go and read my RHS mag. which arrived yesterday.

Have a good day everyone.

Morning all, nice and sunny here.

In reply about back ache, gentle exercise is very good [ + alcohol ! ]

The Polar bear thing is right, the gun is really to scare them. Talking to the expedition leader, he has never had to shoot at a bear in 10 years visiting the Arctic. Just as well with my shooting incompetence.

Strange night out with a couple of colleagues. They cannot get their heads around the mental illness thing, I think they thought I was making it up: and they are doctors. Can't say I enjoyed the evening.

Have a lovely day everyone.

Hi all, back from my shooting training. The general view of the instructor was, that I could not hit a cows a##e with a banjo. However on the bright side, he said, your average Polar bear is a bit bigger target. I will go for further lesson nearer the time.

Sorry to hear some of you are poorly. My cure all should be just the tonic [ as long as you add the gin too ]

I am going for a drink tonight with a couple of ex colleagues. First time I have seen anyone from work since I left.

Need to go outside to plan where I am going to plant my tulips. Normally I just grow them in pots, but this year I am going to try some in one of the borders. I have chosen Negrita, as it is supposed to naturalise well.

Morning all, raining, but very mild here.

Done supermarket and am now off to play cowboys and Indians. I will report back later.

Have a good day everyone.

Mrs G, the sign of a civilised society, is how it helps to look after those in need. Sadly our society does not meet that target without people like you fighting for what is right. I hope you get what you and your son deserve.

KEF, as long as you have your gold hotpants, everything is good.

Hi all, back from my Mums. V. stressful, she is so stubborn. I wonder where I got it from.

Off for my shooting training, in preparation for Arctic trip, should be fun.

Lovely to see you Stacey, and great to see your optimism.

Hope the rest of you are well.
