How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant out.

Can’t plant straight away?

Place in a sheltered spot and water regularly to keep the compost moist

Planting tips and hints:

Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant’s rootball. If your soil is heavy mix in a soil improver before backfilling. Firm the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

When planting in a container, choose a container with good drainage holes and use a multi-purpose compost.

Feeding and aftercare:

Prune in early spring, cutting back last year’s growth to three or four buds from the base. Feed container-grown buddlejas annually after pruning with a liquid feed high in potash..
