Genevieve Schmidt hates my buddleias. I hate them too, a little bit. But there's something about those flowers. How can you not love this?
I know, I know, I know. They're weedy, they shed, and they're total thugs. It's frightening how much they want to grow. I left a pile of buddleia trimmings in my garden last month–just a pile of bare sticks- and all of them sprouted new leaves, like dismembered heads that continue talking. It was terrifying.
So Gen hates them, and I have, in fact, ripped a few of them out to make room for fruit trees. But I was pleased that she had the opportunity to take out her aggression against my remaining buddleias in this video we did reviewing Fiskars Power Gear Lopers.
Here's our review of the lopers they sent us, and as always, comment to win a pair. You can go to Gen's site, North Coast Gardening, as well, where she's also giving away a pair.
Next week, we'll be back with our fourth and final review, in which we get crazy with a new weeding tool.
