Win­ter scent is much more pre­cious than sum­mer scent, as it seems to travel fur­ther in the cold air. This is one of the best, so just close your eyes and in­hale – it’s like drink­ing in the sweet breath of Aphrodite or stroking the paws of a par­tic­u­larly cute puppy. Make sure that you al­ways plant them close to paths or door­ways, as some­thing so pre­cious should never be wasted.

Sar­co­cocca con­fusa

A good back­ground ev­er­green in sum­mer. The flow­ers may be very small but they sure pack a punch. Take semi-ripe cut­tings in late sum­mer. HxS 2m x 1m
