@mikethegardener not straight up your nose like normal gardenia, more laid back and polite with a hint of fruitiness 😳😳

@lamaisonbleueoleron this ones nice, but look at "Crown Jewels" it a hybrid of this and normal G. Augusta. Very hardy and stunning ruffled flowers.

@judrop thanks Julie, I think 😉😉. Don't worry I hate having my teeth done. I hate hurting people......always make sure my patients are in control and not feeling anything 😷😷😉

I've not been to a dentist for 25 yrs. No probs .no toothache. Until a month ago. Half a filling dropped out & half a tooth broke. Then a wk later another half a tooth broke 😢

@judrop please just try finding dentist that you feel comfortable with and go at least every 6 to 12 months to have them checked. Yours is typical story I see all the time. You end up with more complex, difficult treatment (& expensive!) and in viscous circle. Have you sorted the teeth?? 😬😬
