Today I published an article entitled Making Your Fragrant Flowers Work for You.
http://cubits.org/ellasgarden/articles/view/326/ that you might be interested in reading.

It is a way too for those of you that think you may have to many seedlings started to decide to plant them and get some good uses from them.

It takes so long to get the gardens developed and in some ones your seasons are so short that you really don't get a chance to savor the full benefit of your hard work and flowers.

I call it my way of justifying having so many plants around and a good excuse for getting more plants. LOL

Cool Ella! I'm going to have to try this... if I can get a consistent batch of flowers going. What have you tried it with?

I'm wondering about my Passion flower. I know they make perfume with it. I just got my first bloom the other day, and it was super fragrant!

Kelly.... I'm going to be tied up today and tomorrow, but a soon as get done what I need done, will make you a list of some of the flowers I know of.

Remember I have no sense of smell, so I have to depend on other people to tell me if flowers are fragrant or not, or go hunting on line to see if they are.

You can use any flower or herb that is fragrant. You can even use flowers and such that may not have fragrant blooms, but have leaves or there even some plants that have stems only that are fragrant.


You sure can us e your Passion Flower. Soon as mine gets up and starts blooming, I will be using mine too. The butterflies and bees just have to share. : )
