Nicotiana affinis for the evenings
a example would be nice love looking at pictures me.i mean can you show us what they look like by your door
the smell i like by my door is the sweet smell of lavender
Starting with spring, wallflowers, hyacinths, narcissus, bluebells (English ones do grow in France), rosemary, Lilac, lily of the valley.
Summer, roses (lots), honeysuckle, a double petunia called Pirouette, lavender, star jasmin. Wish I could grow sweet peas. As soon as the weather get hot they wilt.
Sorry marty, these don't flower til it's too dark for my photo skills.
But I did just post a couiple of butterflies on the buddleia thread.
I love powerful evening fragrances, so staples are Matthiola bicornis, Nicotiana sylvestris, Zaluzianskya (my favourite.) None of them are 'lookers' so they are randomly placed between plants more pleasing to the eye. I'm also a sucker for all types of Dianthus, even though they don't last long in my clay. The Nicotiana sometimes surprise me and come up again the next year though.
Hi Bunnys, Yes, that works - I have some Dianthus superbus planted in a mix of compost and sharp sand (in a large clay bowl) that have been going for at least 6 or 7 years. I think they really benefit from good drainage.
Sweet rocket http://www.gardenersworld.com/plants/hesperis-matronalis/3418.html for wonderful evening scent. Also honeysuckles and roses (I don't see the point of roses that don't have good scent ).
