Here’s how to achieve ‘scen­tual’ sum­mer ap­peal!

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Garden Trends -

1 PO­SI­TION

Put fra­grant plants near doors, win­dows and out­door liv­ing ar­eas where their be­guil­ing aro­mas can be fully ap­pre­ci­ated. Re­sist com­pet­ing per­fumes.

2 POT

Fill con­tain­ers, hang­ing bas­kets – even old wheel­bar­rows – with sweet-smelling plants and move them to prime spots when at their scented and vis­ual best.

3 PLANTS

Think gar­de­nia, mur­raya, star jas­mine, pep­per­mint gera­nium, frangi­pani, he­liotrope and laven­der for a waft of pure ec­stasy on warm sum­mer nights.
