I want to get a bit more scent into my pots and have limited room to grow big plants. Can you suggest some easy-to-grow plants?
I love nothing better than night-scented stock teamed with sweetly scented stock for both a colourful and fragrant display in the summer.
For the price of a packet of seeds, you can scatter night-scented stock into your pots and then add in the sweetly scented stock when they come into the garden centres.
For spring, I would add miniature daffodils – go for the highly scented ones. Narcissus 'Hawera' and Narcissus 'Sun Disc' are two of my favourites, both only growing to around 18cm.
Can you recommend some long-flowering plants for my new garden?
The following plants are some of my particular favourites:
1. Coronilla valentina subsp glauca 'Citrina'
3. Fuchsia 'Genii'
5. Penstemon 'Alice Hindley'
6. Standard Rosa 'Iceberg'
7. Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill'
