Buddleja davidii

Posted: 12/09/2013 at 12:07

I have 3 Buddleia Buzz in 3 colours which I have planted very close together. As they grow they should look like one bush (I hope). This was suggested by the supplier. They are from Thompson & Morgan but I bought them in Germany.

Has anyone grown Pixie clematis

Buddleja Flower Power - no multicoloured flowers only purple

Posted: 11/09/2013 at 15:08

If they have only just started to flower, you may have to wait a bit longer. According to the description I have just read, they start off purple and then change colour!


On arching branches with dark green leaves, this distinctive cultivar produces striking clusters of purple buds, which open to reveal bicoloured blooms in variable shades of pink and orange, fading to bronze as the flowers mature during mid to late summer.


Seeds- your opinions and advice

Hi 20Lili02, so  sorry to hear about your loss!

After years of having all my seed packets all mixed up in one box, I finally sat down the other day to sort them. First I sorted them into two shoe cartons, cut and sellotaped to fit the largest packet, one for veggie seeds, the other for flowers. I then sorted them by sowing dates, the earliest in the front. Will have to check them regularly so I don't miss the correct times though!

Others may have much better ideas, will be watching this thread

Lavender border in acid claggy soil - too big a battle?

Posted: 10/09/2013 at 09:40

You might mention to him that lavender isn't exactly "low maintenance". You have to cut it back every year!

Anyone can identify this?

Dipladenia sundavilla, comes in pink and red, it's a climber, can be grown in hanging baskets.

They are beautiful, shame though, that you've only got double ones, which are no good for the bees.
