I have rated them one star because they were very leggy and drawn. I had to cut them back severely and only now, October they are beginning to look anything near reasonable. Very disappointing.

Following your excellent advice have taken cuttings from plants sent 3 years ago, year 1 they were magnificent, year 2 watered with Miracle -Gro and had masses of highly perfumed leaves and few blooms, so presumed too much good food, this year have used Tomorite (to encourage flowers), have more than last year, but not many, however foliage, lush, green and highly perfumed. Next year I don't think I'll feed at all and hopefully I'll do better - your advice would be appreciated please.

I planted Attar of Roses a few months ago at the edge of my cottage garden bed.
It is now a very large plant . I have fennel behind it and its looks so pretty. The scent from the flowers and the leaves is wonderful, particularly on a warm evening. It's a first class plant. My favourite this year. So easy to grow. I would highly recommend it.
