Growing Trees Growing a Buddleia (Buddleja)

Growing The Right Tree

Buddleja's are very easy to grow, all they need is to be planted into well drained soil and that it is given plenty of sunshine. Buddleia's can tolerate breezy spots, although this does tend to blow the flowers about, so try to give it a little shelter.

Routine care of Buddleia
Some varieties of Buddleia need hard pruning to ensure that the flowers grow freely and that it does not turn out too leggy. The best time to cut back a buddleja bush almost to it's base is in Spring. It may sound a bit harsh to cut it right back, but rest assured that the long flowering stems will grow back to give you a beautiful show of purple or white flowers during the summer months. If you prefer to have a larger Buddleia shrub in the garden, don't cut it right back in Spring, just make sure that all the dead wood is taken out.
