Very large buddleia - can I prune it right back?

Posted: 04/11/2013 at 18:26

How fortunate was I to find this thread about pruning Buddeia! Our neighbour has a few very tall Buddeia in her garden, they are  way to tall for the size of garden and I want to trim/prune them for her. As the time is right, I will be able to start soon!! 

Many Thanks for your help

The garden in my first home was approx 30 ft x 120 ft, a size you could do things with. Sadly since I had to move, the garden I have now is approx 15 ft x 30 ft, as long as my other garden was wide! Then when you reduce the available area used, for the paved area 15 ft x 10 ft, the 6 ft x 8 ft shed, a raised veg garden 8 ft x 2ft  suddenly approx 1/2 the garden is used, and that is before the flower/ shrub borders are taken into account!

Many thanks for your replies

So many flowers, so little space to put them.

I have been reading a very interesting book about Geoff Hamiltons 'Barnsdale' and it is only through reading the book that I discovered / realised that the Barnsdale ground was divided into many smaller 'show gardens' that were created by Geoff and used on the Gardeners World TV show.

The Question I have is 'What size would you say a garden is?'

How would you classify the size of a garden?

Look forward to your replies

I am at as loss trying to think of a design for our very small garden, the area of lawn is about 18 ft x 20 ft.

Where can I get (much needed) inspiration from?
