Fragrant Gardens

While there are many fragrant plants on the market, the dream of walking into a garden that is filled with fragrance is not as easily achieved as you might think. Some problems include:

1. The perfume compounds being quickly evaporated and carried away in hot, dry and/or windy conditions

2. Many flowers produce their best fragrance at night, when you might not be able to appreciate it

3. Many plants are only in flower for a quite short time

4. Some supposedly fragrant plants might not be strong enough to have an impact

Some plants can produce a lot of fragrance even thought their flowers are not particularly showy.

Some plants have fragrant foliage, but need to be brushed or crushed before we can smell them.
