That's lovely Andrew. It looks like Sarcococca, but mine hasn't got such lovely pointy leaves; What kind is this?

It's sarcococca hookeriana var digyna. It always seems to have a good number of flowers too despite growing almost underneath a yew hedge

Yes, you'd think I could have read that at the top of the picture wouldn't you Andrew! Thanks for your patience and kindness! It's lovely. Mine is thriving this year also, lots of flowers and berries from last year still on the plant. I'm going to take it out of it's pot and plant it in the soil soon....

I like the look of this one, we have the usual variety, does this grow very big ?

Andrew, what is the fragrance scent? acid, sweet?

DD - about five to six feet in time. But as it is a very obliging shrub, it gets put in less than ideal conditions which slows its growth. Also quite amenable to pruning immediately after flowering

Aleyna - very sweet and very strong (I have very little sense of smell but even I can detect this one)

Sorry for the delay in answering the queries - my ISP has been out of action for the past 5 days - grrrrr :-(

Fantastic!, Thanks Andrew!
The university where I work will have a seminar for "indoor gardens" for the students of the "Design Program".
The proposition is to design an indoor garden for condominiuns with aromatic plants.
I'll post pictures of the contest.
