    Are the leaves very fragrant? Could be something from the lamiaceae family? 

    My garden and I live in South Wales.

  • Yes, I agree with nutcutlet.  After flowering this plant produces clear transparent seed cases on the flowering stems.  These are often used in flower arrangements, or if left on the plant they will drop onto the soil producing new Honesty plants next year.
