Went to a farmhouse restaurant up in the Jura mountains this evening and there was a purple buddleia full of them. Will post a picture tomorrow.

You can buy blueing agent (it contains aluminium sulphate) for hydrangeas in any good garden centre. Follow the advice on the packet/tin.

Honeysuckle?

Plastic pots

Most probably the sunlight/UV. It depends on the plastic, polypropylene disintegrates quite quickly, even though the makers say it won't.

Show us your heaps!

Well done you! Amazing what a couple of old doors can be used for.

Brugmansia

I had one for several years. It lived in a pot and was cut down to about 12 inches in late autumn and stored in a cool dry place. Around March/April it would sprout again and was kept outside in a sunny place all summer and was covered in flowers. The bees loved it.
