It is yes; it did produce a couple of flowers this year but it is still young, <2 year old. The scent was something else

Is there any specfic pruning needed? it will grow on a south facing wall with shelter from the east winds so hoping it will survive in Derbyshire!!! I have some spare wire so hoping it will be suitable but if wooden trellis is recommended maybe i need to rethink?

What is the best support system for common Jasmine? Will horizontal wires work or is chicken mesh better to let it twine around? Many thanks!

i've got 3 rosemary cuttings that are doing well and i want to plant them into terracotta pots; does the soil in the pots need to be "poor" (gravely, sandy etc) or does it need to have lots of compost and good drainage? The thiught being that i want lots of leaves not flowers.. Opinions??

I brought a bare root peony (Sarah Bernhadt) in late spring on a punt becuase it was reduced to £2; i planted it and it threw up leaves and looks healthy now. However picky me has decided it isnt in the right place so i dug it up today and moved it but i saw these shoots that were buried quite deep which having read isnt good for flowering. Have i done the right thing to plant it so the shoot tips are above ground level? or do they need to be below but not so deep?
