Re: How to prune Buddleja Morning Mist

from Amanda

I'm assuming that the miniature buddleas are the same as the larger ones in that they just have a single stem rather than sprouting many stems from the ground and if so I would leave at least two bud joints on the stem in case one fails, so I would not cut it down to ground level unless you're absolutely sure. But I see this post is from last year so I would be interested to know what you did in the end?

Re: Self seeding?

from Amanda

Ok thank you very much I will try planting it as you described. I am thinking of planting it in an area near our beehives which doesnt get a lot of attention during the summer due to bee activity (I don't like getting stung!). So hopefully it will colonise away, look beautiful and provide nice food for the honey bees.

Self seeding?

from Amanda

Does Borage self-seed or will I need to replant every year?

Plants to swap

from Amanda

Off the top of my head I have orange daylillies and rose campion to swap. I also have evening primrose, some gorgeous variegated ivy and quite a few damson tree seedlings. I am sure I will find others if I look.

great idea!

from Amanda

This would suit me to a T as I am a bit of a plantaholic. Off the top of my head I have orange daylillies and rose campion to swap. I also have evening primrose, some gorgeous variegated ivy and quite a few damson tree seedlings. I am sure I will find others if I look.

oops

from Amanda

Sorry, I realise you said it must be evergreen and of course the rose isnt but there may be other things you can plant with it.

Rose Alberic Barbier

from Amanda

I love the idea of the wildlife hedge.
I planted this rose as a bare root 7 years ago to cover a north facing wall of an ugly shed. Almost directly in front of it is a large leafy Magnolia Stellata and at the back are apple trees, so it had quite a challenge to establish with low light levels and soggy soil. I tried various other things but to no avail. This rose just took off. Very pretty and smells gorgeous.
