Hello there. I find this scrapbook really handy as I am doing the RHS Diploma in Horticulture at Regents Park. The plant Identity is always a bit of a challenge.

The scrapbook would be even better if it could be divided into dofferent sections. Is it possible to do this?

Good all round plant with a scent. Not for the front of border. Flowers are small but pretty. I cut mine back from 6ft to 3ft with no problems.
