    Anybody got a Bramley tree on it's own?

    Be aware it might not flower the first spring after planting, my new ones only flowered in their second spring.

    Advice on tidying up geraniums and this other fella

    Best to tidy Salvia Hot Lips early spring. You can cut them back anytime really, if you did it now you would lose flowers but it regrows very quickly, it is a bit of a thug.

    Advice on what to do with large buddleia

    Thanks for the advice. I might hold back for the moment as it’s in full bloom but as soon as the flowers have gone I’ll look to cut back vigorously.

    Thanks everyone! I transplanted out of the garden and into the pot earlier in the spring, I think the damage was already done and alas I have retired them to the bin :-(. I'll try again next year!
