Below is a list of the plants we’ve put into the scented garden. The border on the left as you walk up is full of shrubs, perennials and annuals all known for their scent. Some are also night scented, which is beneficial for night flying insects.

The sloped border on the right is a bit mmore flexable. There are a lot of scented plants but because the soil and drainage leave a lot to be desired I’ve also had to plant to the conditions. There are a lot of plants that like wet soil and more shade, but it still makes for a colourful and interesting border.

Many of the plants are available to buy in the nursery.
