I listened to GQT on 11th January and was interested to hear about the wonderful winter colour and fragrance of witch hazels. About 4/5 years ago, I followed professional advice and bought 2 Hamamelis (I think they were variety Pallida). They were more expensive than other varieties but I wanted to grow them in pots and they had been highly recommended for that. However, while they are beautiful in flower, they are entirely lacking in fragrance. There’s nothing you can do about my great disappointment but I think a warning should have been given during the recent item on the radio that not every variety is fragrant.
