In the summer months, many plants regale us not just with an abundance of flowers, but also with their fragrance. Those who live for this sort of sensory experience should never do without scented plants. There is an array of plants, such as angels’ trumpets or ornamental tobacco that release intensive fragrance, above all during the evening hours. The vanilla-scented garden heliotrope smells good enough to bite into, as does honey-scented sweet alyssum. A garden of peppermint, lavender, thyme, chives, rosemary – it’s not just you palate that will enjoy these herbs; your nose will relish them, too.
