I have a smallish sheltered garden and the vast majority of my plants are grown for bees and butterfly etc but I also like things with a lot of scent. A gardener mentioned Meadowsweet on another thread so I have bought some seeds for that but I would like to know what others grow for scent and perhaps I could find some space in my garden for more plants .
I already grow;
Night scented stock. Messy but glorious.
Philadelphus - 3 varieties so far but Belle Etoile is the most scented I could find.
Heliotrope - Cherry pie?
Honeysuckle about 6 different ones but all still small.
Old roses but would like some really strongly scented ones.
Jasmine - Clotted but still small.
Armanii - clematis.
Sweet Williams, pinks and lavender too.
I don't have a greenhouse so everything has to be hardy, selfseeding or die but I Iive in South Devon so frosts aren't very hard if we get them at all.
