Hi. Late last year, I pruned my large, healthy butterfly bush down to 12" high. It is now April 29 here in North Central NJ and I see no signs of growth whatsoever. Have I killed it, or do I just need to be patient?



There's still time, or there is in the UK, anyway - I don't know what your weather's been doing.

Mine is the same! Have you done a scratch test to see if it's still alive?

I's pretty hard to kill a buddleia by pruning, I would say it's the weather, Derek.
