Favorite lavenders and other strongly scented plants

Posted: 08/07/2015 at 20:14

Nicotiana affinis is just turning on. A great evening scent but could do with some warmer, stiller evenings to appreciate it,

I agree with sarcococca which is easy and reliable. Daphnes have the scent but not always so reliable.

Honeysuckle, but make sure it's a good scented one

ID help please - pretty shrub with pink and white petals

I've got one of those and not sure I like it's pinkness but the bees and hoverflies are keen so it can stay

What is this ground cover plant?

Cymbalaria muralis, Ivy-leafed toadflax.

It spreads around but I think I've lost it so it can't be that invasive

Something is killing my plants!

You'll have to get up early to beat the squirrels

I'd try a different strategy.

Study the 'pests' and discover how interesting they all are

It works for me

Ignore the name 'Rose of Sharon' it means nothing. It gets applied to any hypericum.

Look at the proper name of any shrub you want to ID.

Good idea Simon. They'll have to work out who nicked them and threw them in the pond

It's not H. calycinum (Rose of Sharon) if it's a large shrub Gertie. That's a low growing one that spreads about and never looks very attractive to me.

Gardening & what else?

Native wildlife, which most of my garden is designed to support.
