How to prune Buddleja Morning Mist

Question from JAN LESSER

I have a Buddleja Morning Mist in a sunny well-drained bed. The label says it grows no higher than one metre, which suite me. But how hard should I prune it - down to the ground in March or not so drastically? I've had it a few years and have pruned it to about 6 inches, but it has now a narrow base and a top-heavy looking upper part with its leaves and flowers. Has anyone got a similar shrub and how are you pruning it. Thanks

Can Amelanchier Canadensis be pruned as a hedge

Question from Joanna Hewitt

I have bought a house with a row of Amelanchier Canadensis in the small front garden. Can they be pruned to make a hedge, as there is not room for them to grow into trees.

Pruning wisteria

Comment from Iain Harkess

How and when to prune wisteria to encourage flowering in spring? My first flush of flowers has usually been poor but my second flush of flowers in July/August is much better. How do I turn this around?

Pieris Japan Katsura

General post from Shanti Tanna

Can anyone help me?

I have acquired above plant some weeks back. After about a week, despite properly planting and feeding, the plant has started wilting. Is it possible to stop wilt and make it lively again?

Will be most grateful for any assistance.

Kind regards
Shanti Tanna

bulb planting in containers

Question from Katrine

Hi everyone
I'm brand new to gardening, and brand new to shoot.
Was wondering if I could get some help on how to plant bulbs in containers - should I vary the depth to achieve different heights?
and how do I tell which plants would grow happily together in the same container?
Also, it is possible to plant different plants to maintain interest across the four seasons?
Many thanks for all help and tips:)
