Morning ,in the tv guide came a cat from Spalding Plant and bulb co,in it there is a Buddleja davidii in the mag it looks stunning red purple and white all in one bush,it says its a butterfly bush, does anyone know who has the mag is it one plant or a clever photo trying to get me to buy 3 as they do say they sell 3 colours as well, is there a 3 coloured bud ,im thinking of it as a nice looking wildlife bush for the garden, obviously i know nothing about buddleja, i think it may be just a sad misleading picture hope not Alan

    3 separate bushes in 3 colours Alan. What you see in that picture can only be achieved with photoshop.

    Reading the words on the website makes that clear, maybe not in the catalogue, mine hasn't come yet. I never buy anything from them but it keeps coming.

    I have 3 Buddleia Buzz in 3 colours which I have planted very close together. As they grow they should look like one bush (I hope). This was suggested by the supplier. They are from Thompson & Morgan but I bought them in Germany.

    I have a rule never to buy anything from a company that prints plants in impossible colours. Not just that mix but the extremes of any colour

    I wondered if you have experience of using 'Photoshop'.....I ask, as I have just started a course learning how to use Photoshop elements version 11.

    No, I'm an illiterate really

    I'm sure that's not so....Photoshop enables you do do so much with your pics, but so complicated to find your way around.

    I can enhance a pic, crop, remove minor details etc but agree it is complicated.  Kids know more than me - no surprise there!
