I checked on mine yesterday and, although not smothered, the smell is incredible. Any advice on pruning? I think mines a bit leggy. 🙂

@houseofflowers mine have never smelled so strong!! Not sure on pruning was thinking the same with mine though it’s on year 3/4 now and I’ve always been to scared to prune! May do some research x

Mine grew into a great big tree so some pruning will keep it manageable. I haven't loooked it up but I would cut down some branches to the base and each year do the same so eventually all will have been cut back

160719 good old daph is having a second wind this year. Think she’s finally getting properly established after moving from the pot into the ground although she’s got a bit floppy so I’ve tied her up

Apparently these don't like being moved... it's definitely improved mine though!? Flowers on every limb!
