Flowering Months
With the exception of Buddleja, which should be pruned hard to 3 or 4 buds in spring, all other shrubs in this collection can be pruned immediately after flowering. Prune out flowered stems to 3 strong buds above ground level and reduce remaining stems to restrict shrubs to the space available.
All shrubs in this collection can be planted in borders in any moist well drained soil. Position in a sunny or semi shaded site. Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Older plants will require only occasional attention.
