So, many years ago I gave my Dad, who lives in Mallorca, a small melianthus. This was in his first garden in Soller, but they moved to Deia and took it with them. Safe to say its thriving, must be about 20 years old! My stepmum took this about 3 weeks ago #melianthus #smelliathus #apnc #deia

Hard frost can bring the most beautiful changes (as well as not so beautiful ones)...Standing still for a few seconds to take this, I could hear and see the sun melting the frost, all quite magical really. #smellianthus #apnc #mygardenclp

Have you got it outside Rich? I’ve cut mine down to the ground now so it’s 🤞🏻time xx @richard.spicer.7906 I also want to see if there’s a bit I can dig out and pot up, in case we move. Xx

Hmmm not catalogued this before, which is surprising as I know I’ve posted pics of it. So here it is, smellianthus #apnc Smells of peanuts if you rub the leaves. I wouldn’t be without this shrub, it’s a must have. Fine in a pot, although this one is in the ground ✅ #mygardenclp #westsussex
