|When is the best time to transplant butterfly bushes. Should I do it now, or should I wait until the fall?|
|You can actually transplant your Butterfly Bush (Buddleia) either now or in the fall. I would do it now if it were my bush since it blooms in July right up until frost. I HATE to move something that is blooming. When the plant is giving its all to making flowers and seeds it seems a shame to shock it additionally by moving it. You may cut back somewhat on this years bloom, but by next year it should be just fine. |
Remember they like good soil where they will receive plenty of sun. Mulch them generously come fall to offer a bit extra protection over the winter.
