I am growing these from seed too, not quite 10 but they still take a few years!
Wish you could share the fragrance too. I have a tiny passalong Sarcococca and hope to someday see if bloom and discover the scent.
You are in for a treat Susie, the flowers are tiny but the fragrance wonderful. 🙂
I have Sarcococca confusa which looks about the same and smells wonderful. There are not many shrubs that are so beautiful and will do well in the shade. Mine has given me lots of babies so it bodes well for your seeds. Amelia
Absolutely Amelia, my seedlings from last years seeds are still quite small, but I noticed where the berries have just dropped on the ground the resulting seedlings are about the same size as the mollycoddled ones. Theres something about Plants for free thats so satisfying.
I have one which had suffered in recent years, I have rescued it and potted it up, there are a few flowers but not really enough to create much scent, hopefully next year it will be better
I hope so too Helen, I have one in a pot by the back door and its a real spirit lifter at this time of year.
These are beautiful. You never forget that delicious fragrance 🙂
And they are undemanding, do really well in shade and the foliage is a good foil for other plants. 🙂
How wonderful! Can’t decide whether or not they are my favourite scent! We have several varieties in the garden, all with the same wonderful scent. I love them!
I do know what you mean, its hard to chose a favourite fragrance, there are so many beautiful ones. Your garden must smell pretty good though!
Yes, thanks, I must admit that it does at the moment. I do have some difficult choices!
Our winter was so cold last year my sar. humilis flowers froze and didn’t bloom. Hopefully, that won’t happen again. I really missed the fragrance. It’s the scent that reminds me winter won’t last forever. 🙂
That sounds seriously cold, I really like your thought too, its a fragrance full of hope.
They look so beautiful, makes me look forward to spring.
We are enjoying a mild winter so far…But it does feel hopeful that Spring will not be too far away.
Love them! I bought my first S. confusa this year. Aren’t you great to be raising from seed. Enjoy your promise of good things to come!
Cathy, I love collecting and saving seeds. We haven’t a greenhouse currently, so hardier things like Sarcococca, are ideal for me.
You have many plants we don’t have here:-) I love stopping by and visiting to see what you are growing- always learn something new. This one is fragrant! Now that is one I need to learn more about:-)
Robbie, its a great winter undemanding plant, thrives in shade, evergreen, scented, any aspect, any soil, exposed, sheltered, a little winner!
I can smell it from here
