Hi shock box
Please tell your brother that buying a buddleja or otherwise known as a butterfly bush is a good idea as they attract all sorts of butterfly's and insects. They are also easy to look after and smell really nice as well. once planted water in well and then water regular for the first year he should also look out for the unusual types and here are a couple to get him started Buddleja..( Harlequin ) and Buddleja.. ( globosa )which are variegated varieties and show up the other garden plants around them well remember when pruning depending on the size of the plant the general rule is to prune them down to between 2FT and 3FT so prune between February and march time plants they flower on that years growth he can also grow these in containers good luck. see ya
