A year in, and the three variants, all planted in both containers and borders have performed differently. Fairly consistent when constrained by a container, but in the border the Ivory examples are at least 120cm in height and spread in the border,with Sky Blue and Magenta barely reaching 15-30cm in height, and from 50-90 cm in spread. A bit frustrating as they'd been intended to balance each other.

What a wonderful set of plants so good I had to build some nicer new planters for them to bring out their splendour
By Colin Quinton 02-03-2013
being a lover of buddleja these plants are perfect as i have a balcony, they flowered the last year when i got them they are going great guns now their second season, excellent size for small spaces, well done T&M. great plants at a great price
By Alan Kent 28-09-2012
Another great purchase from T&M having managed to get them on an offer. My plugs arrived yesterday, well packaged, labelled and looking in excellent condition. These have now been potted up and am looking forward to seeing them develop over the course of the coming months.
Excellent value collection
By Denise Doherty 15-09-2012
Although these were small plants when they arrived and I never expected them to flower this year, they have and they are very pretty. It has been such a poor year for the butterflies with all the wet weather, so it's nice to know that you can do your bit to help with these dwarf varieties instead of having something that takes over your garden. Great quality plants and at a good price.

Brilliant Buddleja Buzz
By robin turrell 23-09-2011
Arrived around the time they stated and went straight into final planting position !! Advised order slighty different in package but that did not matter . They have Flowered and grown on really well and look fantastic and brought extra bees and butterflies into my garden which was one of the main aims as my last garden had a huge old buddlejas which was like butterfly junction and i kind of missed it but never really wanted something so huge or invasive in my smaller Garden i now have . These fitted the bill just right and needless to say I am very pleased with this wonderful plant and the price was excellent too. I must say they arrived in good condition as do all plants sent by T&M .
By Jennifer Mullen 06-09-2011
I bought 5 of these earlier in the year. They didn't arrive until 2 months after the specified date. However, despite this and our inclement weather up here in Scotland 2 of them are flowering already! I didn't expect them to flower until next year - they only arrived at the beginning of August. I have 5 normal buddlejas but these are beautiful and as they don't take up the same space it leaves you room in the garden for more flowers whilst keeping the butterflies and bees happy. I would and do recommend them to everyone. Fantastic plants.
Delightful Buddleja BuZZ
By Marion Burns 25-08-2011
What a delight these Patio Buddleja are!! As a lover of Buddleja I was over the moon when I found out about these wonderfully fragrant and ever so pretty mini versions. Between these three bushes I have had an endless display of long, tubular, blousy blooms all summer, providing me with an amazing variety of butterflies and pleasent aromas. These buddlejas would be an ideal gift to give to friend or loved one as they can fit into any size garden or back back yard. What a wonderful way to show some one you care about them by giving them this instant mini garden which will also attract wildlife wherever you live.
As you may be able to tell, I love this plant, I really do
By Claire Halford-Dale 23-08-2011
I purchased the Buzz plants previously, this is the second year of the plants flowering and smelling fantastic. Lots of butterfies and insects visit them.
I am so pleased that i have just ordered the white Buzz to plant in a container near my back door so we can enjoy the flowers and scent even more. The repeat flowers are fantastic. Thank you for this lovely plant.
By Susan Rodgers 20-08-2011
followed planting instructions and even with loads of tlc one of the plants died,contacted Thompson and Morgan who sent another three all of which are growing vigourously in pots and the garden lovely colours and attracting some beautiful butterflies ,the main reason for buying these plants. thank you T&M for your customer care.

By DAWN BURNHAM 17-08-2011
I ORDERED THE IVORY GROWING WELL BUT IT'S TURNED OUT TO BE MAGENTA SO I'M DISAPOINTED
Thompson & Morgan are sorry to hear of your disappointment regarding your Buddleja Buzz plant. A member of the customer service team will contact you directly.
very small plants
By Lynda Devlin 16-08-2011
like a previous reviewer I was dismayed at the size of the plants received, and worry about their ability to withstand a northern winter. I planted them in pots but they have remained very small - the rainy weather and lack of sunshine this year possibly havent helped.
I was delighted to find these small varieties which were recommended in a gardening magazine, i hope they survive and prosper, but I am not convinced as yet.
By Sarah Lane 15-08-2011
Great compact plant, filled a pot in its first growing season, loads of flowers too - a MUST for any garden!!!
Buzz Buddleja plants.
By Frederick Dyson 09-07-2011
I got my three jumbo plugs of Buzz Buddleja today and was surprised how small they were and hope they grow as fast as I have been told they will,
I have planted them in containers and hope they make enough gowth to make it through the winter, I lost a lot of my shrubs this last winter due to the cold spell.
Buddleja buzz of excitement
By Ali Davidson 06-07-2011
I bought these last year as a pair of jumbo plugs. They were a gift for my Dad who is looking for an easier time in the garden these days. They were perfect for him. Both plants established themselves well and make a real impact. They are easy to care for and really do attract butterflies and bees into the garden. They may be smaller than the standard variety but still pack a punch.
buddlleja buzz 3 pack
By john lockett 30-06-2011
jumbo plugs received but very little plant, ie 1 little shoot in each plug very poor condition will not bother again
By michelle stewart 19-06-2011
I also bought these last year and all 4 of mine died was very dissapointed as was looking forward to them coming back this year still no buds on them. :(
By Sylvia Kettle 18-06-2011
I purchased two dwarf buddlejas as advertiised in the Sun newspaper, I was very disappointed to receive jumbo plug plants, contacted T&M to return these plants as I feel they are not worth £9.99, only to be informed they do not accept returns. The size of the plant is not included in the advert.
By Julie Thomas 02-05-2011
have bought four of these dwarf plants, they are growing slowly into good shaped shrubs with lovely silver grey leaves. Two of the plants are quickly coming into bud and I look forward to welcoming butterflies to these plants during the summer. I understand you treat them the same as their larger cousins, cutting back to ground level in the spring to encourage growth, trust they are as hardy as the larger version.
By ralph button 25-04-2011
bought 3 last year all died due to frost we presume. trying again
By Sharon Fisher 24-04-2011
I bought the set of 3 and was really happy with them in the first year BUT they don't seemed to have made it through winter despite following the advice for planting in a container. This very disappointing.
By p gussin 23-04-2011
I purchased the lavender and magenta last year I potted them on and placed them on the patio. They made good growth and flowered.I followed all the instructions bur they did not survive the winter , although stated as hardy. Very disapointed.
By jennifer betts 18-04-2011
I bought the collection earlier this year.
The lavender was a good size, in good condition and contines to thrive.
The magenta was smaller, weaker and its survival is still in question.
The ivory was much smaller, wilting badly and is now dead.
By Hilary Swift 21-01-2011
I bought two of these in 2010 and both plants put on a good amount of growth in the first year and flowered well, too. Considering I live in the Scottish Highlands and we had a non-existant summer I think they did really well. Both varieties brought in plenty of butterflies, too, so I would highly recommend these to people who love butterflies and in particular those who have a small garden.
