The Scented Bed Plant List

Over the winter, we completely overhauled the bed in front of our seating area. It was infested with wild garlic and wild strawberries and the planting was chaotic.  So, we had a completely blank canvas for a new border.

We decided to plant up the bed with plants known for their scent. A bit of reaseach and having chosen a colour theme, we made our plant choices.

We have 3 x Rosa ‘Gertrude Jekyll’; 15 x Geranium ‘Wargrave Pink’; 12 x Aster Sedifolius Nanus; 9 X Suponaria ‘Alba Plena’; 3 obelisks of Sweet Pea ‘Matucana’; 1 x Cistus ‘Brushing Peggy’; 9 x Phlox Maculata Alpha; 22 x Lavender ‘Hidcote’ and lots of Night Scented Stocks as a filler.

It’s early days but the sweet pea scent in the evenings is amazing and Gertrude Jekyll is a stunner!
