Hi guys,

The next door neighbour has a lovely climber, which smells amazing in the evening! I would ask him but he never comes out of his house at all.

Hoping you can tell me the name and variety :smile:

Thanks

    Ohh I thought it might be a honeysuckle of some kind! Should have reached over and took a cutting in the spring! :)

    Jasminum x stephanense.
     You can take cuttings from unflowered shoots now.  There is probably lots of new growth you could take a 3 inch cutting off.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    I'm going out there first thing tomorrow morning to take cuttings lol

    Are there any other climbing jasmine that have a really strong scent?

    Most climbing Jasmines like Jasminum Officinale, Jasimine Officinale Affine with pink buds should smell strong. Especially in hot weather. Jasminum Grandiflorum L. 'De Grasse' is frost tender, but supposed to be one of the strongest scent. Jasminum Polyanthum, also very tender, but much more smaller in growth/spread. This plant flowers in late winter into spring, also very strong scent.

    There is s great app which is a one off £4 payment I'm told called "Plantsnap".....take a picture of what you see and like and up comes your answer. What beats Jasmins is Pittosporum...(you see a lot of them in Italy. It needs a lots of full sun though to get it to flower and if it does you can smell the scent when far away from it. The app is highly recommended.

    It's not a very good app if it thinks that's a pittosporum.

    I wasnt saying its a pittosporum just passing on an idea of identifying a plant by trying the app, as I was recommended the app on a charity garden tour yesterday. Craig was asking for other strong smelling plants so I suggested the pittosporum.
