That would be the American nation?

It seems as though an element of stocking up has gone on-or panic buying as we like to call it-but as many precautions are in place as can be

It has turned into the usual media event-there will be a lot of disappointment if nothing happens- like the Hawaiian tsunami

It is getting very windy and stormy across ocean-we will at some point get the aftermath of of this but not that intense

I 'm confused now, I always thought buddlia was cut back to the ground in May and just trimed to stop wind rock over the winter.  Is it better to cut right back now?

I will repeat what I have written elsewhere-in my experience it makes little difference when you cut it back-I have done it at this time of year with no problems-one thing I have learnt is that you cant kill as buddleia-honestly I would do it now- job done

There have been loads of recent discussions on this subject recently-it is the time of year and the wet conditions-they will disappear as quickly as they appeared.

I would be more inclined to switch to container gardening rather than coping with those conditions-that leaves you open to a whole load of options

That is if you hadn't considered or are doing that already?
