Success have moved them among'st the self set ones next door although they was'nt to happy.... you would'nt believe there must be 7 or 8 bhuddleia bushes, self set o'course all around 5/6 foot and behind them the mother of them all, what can only be described as a 16ft bhuddleia tree.... and they had to picnic on my tiny 3 branched one. thankyou all once again. ;-)
