I'm not up on the specs here but absolutely fascinated by them.  I am picking up info though. Learning all the time.

Brilliant pictures folks

Hiya dannyboy

Check out Woottens.  They are a fantastic company.  I buy all sorts from them amd have yet to be disappointed.  Delivery is usually within a day or so.

Luckily I have some local nurseries too that supply grasses amd there are nurseries that supply small size plants.  Knoll nurseries too but woottens is my preference.

Good luck dannyboy. It's fun, isn't it, planting a new border?

Agree 4thPanda.  I love monitoring the tracking.  I'm never far out with the timing when it arrives.  

Got a plant parcel on order and will certainly be tracking it. 

Buddleja 'Buzz' revisited

Posted: 28/11/2013 at 20:32

Rhonsal, hi.

Your plant may not have been mislabelled.  As I understand it, the Buzz series are still vigorous plants ESP in the open ground and in good soil.  

I have today ordered the white one...Ivory....and fully expect it to be at least 5' tall by mid summer but prob more.  A "normal" buddleia would grow far taller.

 I have a plant in 3 litre pot due in next day or so so it should have an established root system.  For the same price elsewhere I was offered plug plants.......  I know just where it will go to offset a brilliant red dahlia.  Ok, corny but I think it will work well

There are dwarf varieties............    Blue Chip being one...but I think it's lost character of buddleias as I know them.  

Overwintering Gazanias

Depends on the variety of gerbera.  There are now hardy types.  I grow a couple that have been outside for 2 winters.

However, if in cold area I would lift amd pot up for the GH

Overwintering Gazanias

Outside gazanias survive for me...even flowerimg over winter.  In a GH I seem to lose them.  

I think it best to leave them outside....if they survive then fine.  If not buy more.  The plants are cheap to purchase in the spring from local nurseries.
