Very highly scented in the warm sunshine today.

It’s a shame they flower as the foliage packs up for the year.

Mine stopped flowering last week Ralph. My greenhouses are unheated which could explain the time difference.

The plant is now growing, the new leaves are emerging from the skeletons of the old

Mine are in the unheated part of my greenhouse too. It's probably more down to when you and I water them.
