With little knowledge, I'm slowly turning an acre field into a garden! This is my first gardening attempt, so there's such a lot to learn! 🐝🦋🌻

Ooh that brings back memories. We had one in our garden in Swansea when we were kids - used to pull the flowers off and throw them at each other! I'm better behaved now.

If you were close I would offer as a few of my cuttings took this year mind you just cut them to strips a plugged them in border. They seem to have done fine. Good luck it will be lovely my only comment would be that this is an early one and my purple ones come much later. @krishnahairdo Have fun! 👍 👍

@emmaline76 it is lovely! I harshly cut it back every year and in 3 years it's now about a meter hight/width. I suppose you could keep it smaller if you hacked it back smaller every year? I do love it as it comes earlier than the other buddleas! 👍
