Container-grown plants can be planted right up to early autumn. Buddleias perform best in a sunny position in well-drained soil, although will tolerate most conditions apart from wet, heavy clay. Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain. Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you’re planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place. Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots. Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker. Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling). Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well. Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc Care Advice for your buddleia: Mulch with manure in autumn or add a general-purpose fertiliser in late spring to improve the number of flowers, however, avoid a summer feed as too much fertility promotes leaf growth over flower production. Water freely when in growth and sparingly otherwise. Each spring apply a thin layer of mulch to retain moisture and control weeds.
