It's easier to,do when it has flowered.  Then, basically, you just remove the flowered stems.

Domt touch it until it has flowered....prob will next year

Agree with honeysuckle but add serotina too.  Delicious scent and prob the best looking flowers.  Jasmine too.

Heliotrope arborescens....the perennial shrubby one ....has delicious scent from late spring on.

For tactile fragrance lemon verbena and salvia elegans (pineapple sage) are powerful scents when brushed past, as are the scented pelargoniums

Daphne Eternal Fragrance will flower throughout the summer months on an evergreen small shrub.

Good advice smokin

I always use tops for canes.....well, I try to.  

I take too many risks inthe garden though........reaching,up with hedgetrimmer on an unsteady ladder is the most common one.  Jumping over the pool rather than walking around even though it is not very big.  Never fallen in yet but landing on a slippery perimeter slab has meant a dicey moment or two.  Just think, if I fell in and drowned the jokes thread would not have existed!

Not so hot but still beautiful day here. Couldn't resist yet another echinacea in flower outside a shop.  At this time of the year I pot on and enjoy flowers or remove them.  I grow these now for next year. 

This is when I decide which plants to move and often take the risk of doing so when they are In Full flower.  Going to swap helenium for veronicastrum and hope they won't notice the move.  They will teach get a cuppa and a biscuit after
