Today I spent a delightful morning at Petersham Nurseries drinking coffee and learning about scents. The lovely Thomas took us through a number of plants that can be used along paths, in doorways and patios to create heavenly atmosphere. Apparently the most fragrant plants flower in winter and summer which filled me with joy as I am trying to make my garden more cheerful for the dreary cold months. Summer is not such a big issue for this tea rose and sweet pea lover.
The winter section was very interesting and the list of plants that can beautify my dull winter garden is growing. The one that I must get is Viburnum Dawn with small balls of pink flowers. Another plant worth contemplating is Daphne which my neighbours have got and every time I pass by I have to stop and have a sniff.
What are your favourite scented plants?
