A shrub that reminds me of my parents’ garden as a child, where this flowered all the way through from November to March, filling its corner of the garden with incredible perfume. My mother always picked sprigs for little glasses on the kitchen table, so we would have the scent inside too. A winter-flowering garden classic which no garden should be without, if you have the room.
