I grow this for the scented flowers, but it is a big job.

I love this and spent last evening googling photos of it Amy. Don't be adding any seeds to Tony's beer now..haha, :))

Thanks girls , Haha Janey apparently the seeds have a mucilaginous coating , old herbalists recommended placing a seed into the eye of someone with a foreign object in it so that it would adhere to the object making it easy to remove , not sure about that but expect it was true ..
