I've never noticed a smell either Fairy and they're heaped up in the door frame

I smell the bats sometimes when weather conditions are right, even when the bats aren't at home

But if you like the excitement of growing from seed, Catherine is right, they need cold treatment. Sow them now in good well drained compost and leave them outside til they germinate. Don't be tempted to protect or use heat.

I have hostas just coming into flower and the leaves look pretty good as well. Not favourites on the slug menu unlike their near neighbours.

Pruning

Yes it can. I think late winter is the time. Some people cut them back very hard every year for large leaves and no flowers.
