A real bee and butterfly lure
A real bee and butterfly lure
The butterfly bush ‘Ile de France’ (Buddleja davidii) has deep-purple flowers that smell wonderful and attract bees and butterflies. The butterfly bush is free of pesticides, such as neonicotinoids (harmful to bees)!

As the summer comes to an end, the butterfly bush ‘Ile de France’ is in full bloom. It is a broad, branching, and upright decorative shrub that can reach over 2 metres. It is one of the most richly blooming butterfly bushes.

If you buy deciduous shrubs in autumn they might not be looking quite as beautiful as usual. The big benefit of planting shrubs in autumn is that by spring they will be well rooted in the garden and ready to burst into growth.

Planting+

What do I need?

  • Shovel
  • Bucket
  • Watering can or garden hose

Make sure that the root ball of the Buddleja is sufficiently damp. Place the shrub in a bucket of water for 15 minutes before planting. Create a spacious hole for planting and till the soil well. Place the root ball of the butterfly bush in the planting hole. The top side of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole up with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.

 

The butterfly bush will grow in all well-drained soil types and does best in full sun. Combine the butterfly bush with bluebeard and summersweet for a true butterfly garden.

Care+

What do I need?

  • Pruning shears
  • Cow manure pellets
  • Watering can or garden hose

Has your butterfly bush grown too large? Clip off all the branches between 30-40 cm. The plant blooms on year-old branches, so this won’t impact flowering. Prune the dead branches off in the spring. Insulate the bottom-most metre of the butterfly bush during harsh winters.

 

In the spring and summer, sprinkle cow manure pellets around the shrub. Water the pellets right away.
