Butterfly Bush Haircut

If it is February, it is time to cut back the Butterfly bushes that surround the deck. During the growing season, they grow to 10 to 12 feet tall crowding the deck seating. Every February we cut them back to about 2 feet and the growing process will start in the spring. In the first picture is our compost ball that is turning food scraps and leaves in the "good" soil. We roll the ball around every week to mix up the ingredients.
