Welcome to Buddleia.net!
 
Buddleia (also known as the "Butterfly Bush") are a great summer plant for the garden, they are easy to care for, they have bright vibrant colours, and they act like a magnet to butterflies (and Hummingbirds in warmer countries).  But when the summer is over some backwork is needed in cutting back the old wood ready for the next season.
 
At Buddleia.net you can find all sorts of information about Buddleia, just follow the links at the  left of this page and enjoy your stay, oh! and don't forget to check the Buddleia News section for items and articles about Buddleia.
 
Enjoy your stay! 
 
Top tip for Buddleia in winter
If you didn't cut back your Buddleia this autumn, don't panic, you can always cut it back in April before any growth starts, and if you have very young Buddleia it might be a good idea to give it some protection from severe frost this winter.  An effective way to protect your young buddleia from the ravages of winter is simply dump a pile of leaf mulch on top of the cut back crown, this helps protect it from cold snaps and provides 'food' in spring time.
