Choisya or known as mexican orange blossom. It does indeed produce flowers that have a strong citrus smell a couple of times a year. I planted one in my front garden 12 years ago and in that time it has got to just over 5 foot by 5 foot wide so that gives you an idea of how it grows. It doesn't mind a prune and looks great in flower arrangements.

You could pot the bare root plants for now. Its a bit cold for the bulbs so think you have to wait for it to get a bit warmer as the soil will be rock hard now.

David Austin rose The Generous Gardener is a pale coloured rose with good scent. Also, climbing Arthur Bell. The flowers are an intense yellow but they get paler as the flower ages and the perfume is gorgeous.

A Grass, but which one?

I've had this in my front garden for a while but don't know which type it is. It might be a stip but its not Gigantea or Tenuissima.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
