Still a bit too wet and windy to get out in the garden, so this is one from the other day ☀️😊 This is the plant that led me to look for an app to store photos of my plants... Little did I know then what a wonderful community I was joining 🥰 #philadelphus-belle-etoile #the-one-that-started-it-all What was yours? 🤔

Mine was this time of year too, and was either Sarah Bernhardt or Lady S...who knew we’d make such lovely friends from cataloguing our plants?! And have some of the funniest times x 😘

My reason was because I wanted to create a beautiful garden and I hadn't got a clue where to start!! I can't remember where I found GTags but I'm so glad I did. The help I have had has been immeasurable ❤

1 Jul 2018 • It must be my #GardenTagsanniversary around now as this was the plant that started it all, the first one I ever posted 💚 #philadelphus-belle-etoile (Might benefit from a prune this summer...)

26 Jun 2018 • #scentsofsummer Summer wouldn’t be summer without the scent of this wonderful shrub wafting over the garden and in through the windows. It’s also the plant that started my love affair with GardenTags as it was the first plant I photographed 😍 #philadelphus

It’s one of my favourite plants Kim. My F-in-law grew this one from a cutting and we planted it out shortly before he died, many years ago @kimguy

Looks amazing and I’m trying to find plants with scent. Does it need a lot of watering? Do you have it in full sun or partial shade?

awomanonabike

This is in partial shade Hannah - it only gets morning sun. I’ve never watered it and it never seems to show signs of needing it. There is a larger leafed variety that is a bit less tolerant of cold but I can’t remember its name. Take a look at #smell-o-vision for some other ideas 😊 @HM2T

This is the plant that started it all for me. A year ago I took a photograph of it and then went looking for an app where I could store photos of my plants & garden... I just wish GT had smell too. This has just the most gorgeous summer scent that fills the garden. 🎂 Cheers @ukgardentags & to all my new GT friends for a wonderful year! 🍾🥂

It's amazing how the smell fills the air all round. I guess if it flowered longer we'd just get accustomed to it & it wouldn't be so special. Or something 😉😊 @carmar
