Can anyone suggest a type of Honeysuckle for a shaded corner of the garden up against a shed, I don't want anything that will be too rampent but will attract bees to pollunate the veg boxes and the butterflies that we seem to be short off at the moment. It will have to be grown in a trough as the bottom of the garden is  concreated.

If not honeysuckle other suggestions for fragrance and the above would be appreciated.

I will certainly be trying the soap in the nails trick - I hate scrubbing my nails after gardening.

Scented flowers

My favourite for scent are Geraniums - unfortunately I could not tell you if any are stronger than others - I usually plant a selection together to get the colour as well.

We live on the Isle of Wight and we are also looking for garden shows and any events where you can do plant swaps as I have plenty of broccoli but no success with Leeks for example, so would like to get swapping.   Also as someone who has just started growing fruit and veg I would like to hear from any gardening clubs on the Island, that I could meet people and get advice etc.
