One of my favourite shrubs

I knew one that was trained very successfully against a sunny fence ...... it was glorious on a sunny day to lie on the grass in that garden and enjoy the wonderful scent.

Have you spread any home made compost on your veg patch?  I get the occasional potato 'volunteer' appear, growing from a piece of potato peel which has an eye and which hasn't rotted down properly.
