Look Inside

Gardens are a delight at any time, but never more so than when in full bloom and enriched by embracing fragrances. All too often these are temporary highlights rather than permanent characteristics of a garden. Scented plants can be either a delight or a curse. For many people, there is nothing more pleasing that a garden filled with fragrance, but for others who suffer allergies, certain plants can make them physically ill.

The scented plants ebook will help you select wonderfully scented plants to compliment your garden. Why only treat your eyes in your garden when you can also treat your sense of smell? Step outside and smell the wonderful aroma of your carefully selected plants. What a treat!

Fragrance is for many people, one of the most enchanting characteristics of a garden. Even though some varieties of roses, herbs and cottage plants are not strongly scented, many are. Some release fragrance from the flowers, others from the foliage. Some plants will smell strongly at certain times of the year, irrespective of where you plant them, while other plants need to be brushed or crushed to release the fragrant oils, and as such must be planted between stepping stones or spilling over the edges of garden beds.
