Lovely little blue domes

Reviewed 10th April 2018 by Jean Williams

I grew these last year and loved these pretty little blue domes which lasted for ages. I must admit I didn't realise they were scented but will grow them again this year to liven up some pots. I have already recommended them to a neighbour.
