      These are many years old so give your some time Kris. I want to add a couple to my back garden but still haven’t ventured to a garden center.

    Oh my gosh! Those daphne are amazing, I can only imagine the fragrance. The cerinthe are cool, I always wanted to try some. Everything looks wonderfully springish 🙂

      The fragrance of Daphne is hard to describe. It’s very strong but not sickly or overpowering. Sweet, spicy, a bit lemony? I planted these after a drought. We’d lost many of our front shrubs and Daphne doesn’t need much water (although it’s been inundated this winter). I’d read to plant it where you would walk by it and that turned out to be sound advice.
