Looks like Cornwall did best with the sunshine today . Wall to wall sun and 13 degrees or so but cloud tomorrow and for the weekend.


To prune or not to prune??

To create an open well shaped bush,  pruning to designated buds is necessary.  As for flowering I don't think it makes any difference.  

Buddleias can be sheared as can most shrubs but, again, pruning with secateurs makes for a vastly better looking shrub

Aym, you know you will need another variety, don't you?  

I would not feed if they are that small but a high potash fertiliser/tomato fertiliser will help
