Buddleia Pruning?
« on: April 16, 2017, 06:39:49 PM »
I have three fairly big Buddleia bushes in our garden, and need to cut them back, they are getting out of hand.  How hard can I cut them back, and what's the best time to do this?

I'd be grateful for any advice.

I cut my down to the bones each autumn. I mean really down short and they come back each year without issue.
Im no expert but it has worked for me here up on the NE coast.

Yeah, I'd agree with alfonso, have always been told budleia need pruning hard to promote flowering the next year.
Pruning as with all deciduous trees and shrubs ought to be done while they are dormant, so Autumn / winter.

Again no expert, but this has always worked for me.

I also do the same, although it wasn't ALWAYS working for me, it's been ups and downs but then I'm a rather sloppy gardener....
