Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. In 2012 we opened for the NGS. https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/garden/26064/

The first flower to open on the #sarcococca It smells so intoxicating that I’ve snipped the stem off and brought it indoors. The fragrance is now filling the house 😍 #macro #fragrantshrub #whiteflowers

Yes you most definitely should, Carol. It’s a bit boring in the summer months but I wouldn’t be without it in winter 😍😘 @carolgs

The berries change colour as they mature and finally turn black. They self seed easily and I’m always finding baby plants underneath the mother plant. #berries #sarcococca #fragrantflowers #evergreen #newplants #jacarandafrontview #mygardentoday 23/11/2019

Have one by the front door Barbara. Visitors can often be found looking for the source. I say nothing 😂🤣

My favourite shrub for #winterplanting has to be #sarcococca 💚 When these tiny white buds open the whole garden is filled with a honey-like scent. #evergreenshrubs #fragrantshrub #winterbeauty #containergarden

In the #wintergarden fragrance is a must! Not only do the tiny flowers on this #evergreen shrub smell heavenly but it then produces black #berries These self seed beneath the mother plant and you end up with lots of new plants! 🌱🌱😀
