Where to plant Buddleia

They grow best in a sunny position and fertile well-drained soil. Plant them in in spring or Autumn before the frost sets in. Loosen the soil and mix in a good compost, dig the hole double the size of the plant container, with the top of the rootball being level with the surface of the soil. Space the plants 5 to 10 feet apart, depending on their variety and water thoroughly.

How to grow Buddleia

Butterfly bushes grow pretty well on their own, so you don’t need fertiliser, but a good quality compost when planting will help. Once planted, water it well and continue to water whilst your plant continues to grow. Ensure sure that you don’t overwater the soil and once your plant is fully grown, just water it sparingly.

How to prune a Buddleia Plant

A buddleia bush should be prune at least once a year. The best time to prune is in early spring, March is normally the best time as long as a cold snap isn’t expected. Prune it down to about 30cm from the ground. There may be some early sprouting shoots on the Buddleia during a mild spring, but still prune it back.

Remove dead flowers and watering in very dry conditions will bring butterflies fluttering to your blooming Buddleia.

Often seen growing alongside railway lines and waste ground it can be an invasive species if not pruned back.
