Short flowering season for my buddleja's

Peanuts, surprised esp as you dead headed.  Many don't think about deadheading buddleias for some reason but, for me, it helps, prolong flowering.  Perhaps they needed deadheading when you were on holiday

Not great customer service Lou

at least you spoke up.  That was great. 

it happens. My young niece, 21, is sometimes not given the respect she deserves because of her age and I have made my feelings known. I always get better service and  "respect" ....maybe for being a male?

Been whizzing around Removing long dahlia flower stems that have faded or are fading in amticipation of heavy rain and strong winds later.

officially cornwall has had more rain this month than preceding months together.  Yet here its been dry apart from last 10 days or so.  Micro climates I guess.

Yes that is totally hardy satrdayboy.  Coreopsis too.

half price is great

Don't worry about the frost too much......cover them with fleece.  You could put the pots into the ground too for the winter
