The flowers on the Sarcococca are just starting to make an appearance. It’s been a beautiful day but I’m stuck indoors getting over the flu, so I’m enjoying it from the comfort of a chair with a cuppa and a blanket.

It’s right at the back door so that I can get the scent when I (eventually) go out ☺️ @ukjohnny

I really thought I’d got away with it this year Pauline. I’m not sure if I’ll bother with the flu jab next time, it doesn’t seem to work for me. I hope you manage to avoid it and I think the cold spell is on its way - about time too! @pauline33

Hope you start feeling better soon Suzanne. Mine is just by the front door and is pumping the scent out and filling the front garden. It’s a fabulous plant. Hope you can smell it soon 😊

High hopes for this in the trickiest area in my garden. No direct sun and everything I've planted so far has been attacked by slugs. Plenty people saying it's not much to look at but the scent in winter is unbeatable.

I like this, is it evergreen?

It is @clustyroen. You get berries after it flowers too. It might not be any great shakes to look at but it's got a lot of other things going for it. Apparently smells of Vanilla in the winter.
