I have noticed this weekend that all the new leaves have wilted and wonder if this is frost damage caused by our longer cold period and frosts at night.  If this is the case, will the scrub recover (I did not prune it back last autumn and planned to do this once frosts have gone)?

    I think you can hack it back now Jane. The worst is over even if we get a few night frosts. They always look a bit depressed at the end of winter.

    Buddleias are pretty tough, I've pruned mine.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • Eeek! We've not hacked ours back yet but it's on the list! Go for it Jane - it will be fine! image
