OT book "The Fragrant Year"
I know so many of us here are "nosies" and really appreciate fragrance. This book, by ? Wilson & Leonie Bell, helped so much with selection and cultural requirements. I enjoy the writing style too.
Lots of old fragrant cultivars are listed (I thought of Christopher and his sweet violets).
I bought it online from thrift books for next to nothing.
I ordered some dianthus today based on her praises.
And there's a chapter on antique roses. Everything fragrant all year long.
