    I've got one, given to me by a dear friend image  still a baby and not old enough to flower yet - but one day image

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • Oddly enough Tetley - my plant of the month is a Ribes too - R. sanguineum White Icicle. Mine are only babies too Dove but they've just started flowering - lovely spicy pure white flowers hanging in clusters image I'm really pleased I bought a couple of these image

    Totally agree! It's a wonderful scent but mine won't be flowering for a week or three yet. I like the leaves - but then, I like eleagnus too. Speaking of which, another winner is the silver leaved, tiny yellow flowered eleagnus which will scent the whole garden when it flowers in early summer.
