Q: You mentioned some books on your show. I believe you mentioned a book on fragrant plants, but missed hearing a title.
A: Theresa Schrum replies: “The book that Walter discussed is “A Garden of Fragrance” by Suzy Bales.
It is a great reference book. It even has plants listed by the type of smell (vanilla, cinnamon, etc.). I’m going to order it myself.
The plant that Patricia Collins and I discussed on January 19 was Wintersweet (Chimonanthes praecox). It is available at many nurseries, but you may want to call around first.
