Recently I was watching a gardening programme on TV and the presenter reminded viewers to trim back young Buddleia plants about now. Buddleias are normally pruned in March but I would usually tidy the plants a bit at this time of year too.

I'm currently on a break from hospital where I've just completed the 3rd round of chemotherapy to treat leukaemia; I return in a few days for the 4th round. My garden has been left to grow wild in my absence. Some of my Buddleias are in need of a trim but I am not gardening.
