Buddleja are best planted in a well-drained soil or sand, clay, chalk or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade. Buddleja are well suited to flower beds and borders within cottage and wildlife gardens as their blooms are attractive to pollinators.

At the time of planting, loosen the soil with a fork and mix in a generous amount of compost, digging a hole that is twice the diameter of the root ball so that it is kept level with the soil surface. Space companion plats 1.5m-3m (5-10ft) apart to allow room for your plants mature size. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil into place.
Keep soil moist during active growth and check that the soil is consistently well-draining. Once established, Buddleja can be cut back to ground level during early spring. Remove all spent flower heads when necessary, as this will encourage an abundance of fresh blooms in the following season.
It is possible to propagate Buddleja by softwood cuttings or semi-ripe cuttings in summer, or by hardwood cuttings in autumn.
