Have to admit this is one of my least favourite plants. Partly because it dies really ugly but also because it is a massive known trigger for Asthma which I have quite badly and it grows like a weed round here so I risk an attack just going out or coming home when it's in flower.
@lydiastirling Oh no that’s not good! This one is really quite large now. Hedge trimmer couldn’t cut it back much more but might have to go in with a saw tomorrow as there’s a few more branches I want to get rid of!
Not amused. I've noticed some of the branches being broken and because it's by my bird feeder assumed it was the starlings. But no, this morning I caught a pigeon trying to get to the bird feeder I'd hidden in the buddleia for the tits and smaller birds. Made a right mess. Not happy at all!! 😡
