I have a Question for you Garden lovers today. Those of you that have Butterfly Bushes; Do you prune them each year or let them grow freely?
As you can see, I prune my bushes (I have talked about this before. Click HERE for more) but only due to them being under our low power lines. If not for the power lines, I would let them go free and see how large they would grow.
Look to the back of the garden, behind the pine tree trunk and you will see the clump of wild Plum trees in bloom. I have never had Butterfly Bushes until I started to Garden at this house. I don't even know if they will grow as nicely if not pruned. But these sure seem to enjoy being pruned as they bloom profusely for me each year.
I can hardly wait for them to bloom as they call in the butterflies, bees and hummingbirds from all over the neighborhood! I cannot imagine my garden without these wonderful bushes. Lets see what the BUSH POLL, will be, In the Garden...
