Thoughts with those worrying about their families and not in good health right now

Fairygirl, you pinched my suggestion.  Berberis Darwinii would be my choice 

Daek evergreen indestructible foliage, orange flowers in spring and those blue berries.   Doesn't have to be a hedge ....a couple at strategic points.

May I also say I wish you and your dad good news 

Got new phone today.  Expected fun n games but transferring stuff and activating new phone went quite smoothly.  However, an even lesser,camera on this phone so a new camera is now a priority.  ....if only to post pics on the  forum,to do plants  any justice 

Been wet, wet , wet today.    But summer is on its way back over,the weekend folks

Buddleia puzzle

Posted: 27/08/2014 at 13:21

I regard the Buzz varieties as needing better soil and comditions than the usual buddleias. 

Conflicting opinions above but I don't think buzz is good in pots for more than one season.

I have buzz Ivory purchased earlier this year.  It's  about 5' tall and full of flower.  Been flowering for few weeks. It's in a dryish spot but has good soil.  Not fed.  I deadhead as soon as flowers go over which prolongs flowering
