Sorry butterflies!

Well I've done what I said I would do.
I've cut Bertie Buddleia back
Sorry butterflies!
If I didn't do it, the council would have done, and last time they did it they butchered it. Which is why Bertie went mad ...Buddleias should be cut back when they are dormant, not in their growing period.

Before and after photos show that people can now get past without taking too much away. The top one is the after picture

Yay for the cutbacks. Sorry butterflies!

I have tried to be as gentle as possible...cutting back in growing season just promotes bushier growth. I have just cut back to enable passage.
