@ublaszko you’d have it right by your back door so you could enjoy the scent 😋 it packs a punch for a small plant!

@jeatacake the daphne scent is so unusual I think I’d have to pick that 😜

@columbiariver I agree! For year-round colour and winter flowers & fragrance 😋

When mine gets a little bigger I'm planting it by the back door, definitely! I have a dwarf version, but it doesn't have the impact of this one 💚

@columbiariver that’s a great place for it, getting to appreciate the fragrance a lot more when it’s nearer the house. I didn’t realise til today they like shade so might move this to my front door. Yours is bigger than mine already! 😂 and you have the berries too 🖤

@kez001uk I love Sweet Box, I have one by my back door and when it’s in flower the fragrance is gorgeous. I can open the door and the fragrance wafts in and I get free air freshener. 😊👍🏼

@pixierose they’re great aren’t they 😍 wish I had space by my back door to enjoy the fragrance more but have moved it next to the path so I get a whiff 😛

@ublaszko it’s so nice isn’t it 🤤 should “borrow” a cutting 😉😉

I'm terrible at taking cuttings! 😂 I've taken various cuttings over the years but none of them took 😂

comment
pixierose

@ublaszko When you take a cutting do you have a heel on it? It’s more likely to take that way. Dip it in some root hormone powder and use a pencil or dibber to make a hole around the edge of a decent size pot and pop in firm and water and put some gravel on the soil top. Then put a plastic bag over the top and hold on with an elastic band and make sure the cutting doesn’t touch the bag. Put somewhere warmish and you should strike some roots. 🤞🏼🙏🏼😊

@kez001uk The fragrance is amazing. Next to the path will be nice cause you’ll get a nice whiff when you walk past. 😊👍🏼

Yes, I've tried that but no luck. They don't seem to grow roots and rot away instead. I think maybe I need to add more grit next time @pixierose

@ublaszko same! Had success with 1 fuchsia but then my greenhouse blew down and it died. I think the 2 must be linked somehow 🤣🤣🤣

@debrascott it really is gorgeous 😋 I didn’t expect it to flower since I only bought it as a tiny plant a couple of months back. But it’s full of flower. Think I’ll be moving it near the front door once it’s bigger, to appreciate that scent much more!

I was mistaken. It's the sweet box that I was thinking of previously.

@columbiariver I think this is scented too when it flowers. Don’t think I’ll get to see it this year 😂 seen a few sweet box on here recently and it has cute little flowers 😍
