I love my daphne Jaqueline Postil - comes out every year in the week after Christmas and is still going strong at the end of February. Its by our driveway, so catch its gorgeous smell everytime we come home - even in the dark - magic.
I planted a wintersweet two years ago. It is still quite tiny (40cm high) - lots of leaves in summer but, as yet, no sign of flowers. Does anyone know how long they take to get to flowering size ?
I have a wintersweet and only realised after planting that they can take up to 7 years to flower. Mine started flowering in its third year (a little) and improves every year. This year I've had a pretty nice display (year 5). The fragrance is so lovely, though, that it's worth waiting for. Good luck with yours!
Oh dear - glad I asked, as I would have given up long before that ! Never mind, it is not taking up too much space. Something to look forward to in 2020 !
