The best fra­grant blooms for your gar­den – and in­doors.

THE SWEETEST SWEET PEAS

Few scented flow­ers are pow­er­ful enough to be en­joyed sev­eral me­tres away but the clas­sic sweet pea – the tra­di­tional va­ri­eties – will carry its per­fume for some dis­tance, es­pe­cially on a calm sum­mer's day. Look for heir­loom va­ri­eties such as 'Cu­pani', 'Matu­cana' or 'Painted Lady'. Spencer va­ri­eties are highly fra­grant too, as are many of Dr Keith Ham­mett's cul­ti­vars, like the pop­u­lar 'High Scent' and 'Erewhon'.
