Winter is a season that can be packed with some sublime scents, from the heady fragrance of Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill', to the delicious wafts of Christmas box.
Forced bulbs are perfect for providing winter scent indoors. By starting the forcing process in autumn, you can be enjoying both the blooms and fragrance of hyacinths, tulips and daffodils come February.

Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill'
Daphne species are known for their incredible fragrance. 'Jacqueline Postill' has delicately pink flowers, which are white in the centre, but best of all, they're intensely scented. Plant it next to outdoor seating or paths to get the most of this shrub, and avoid transplanting once in situ.
