Garden Theme: Fragrant Plants




This is the tricky one. Having fragrant plants that lasts.
So far, these are my collections:

FLORAL:

1) Water Jasmine (Wrightia religiosa)
2) Orange Jasmine (Murraya paniculata)
3) Jasmine "Grand Duke of Tuscany" (Jasminum sambac)
4) Night Blooming Jasmine (Cestum nocturnum)
5) Rangoon Creeper (Quisqualis indica) - " passed back to my mum"


FOLIAGE:

1) Fragrant Pandan (Pandanus amaryllifolius)
2) Holy Basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum)
3) Curry Leaf Tree (Murraya koenigii)
4) Indian Borage (Coleus ambionicus or Plectranthus amboinicus)

I have managed to plant 4 pots of Water jasmine, 1 pot of Orange jasmine (after many trials and error - I have decided to buy this plant which I got for a very good price - RM4)

My mum had passed to me some of her collection and now I have a nice fragrant collection.
Most of my fragrant plants are still young and may take some time for them to mature and be at the optimum stage for fragrance.

Presentation:

a) All of these plants are unattractive unless they flower, so when they don't flower, the best thing to do is set them with side deco.
I had placed white pebbles by the base of the pot to give a maximum impact for the plant when they don't flower or yet to flower.

b) As for the fragrant foliage - I placed all of them in one spot, to give an impression that they are a collection of herbs and fragrant plants. I'm still working on it.

Will write up individually each plant as I progress with the plant.
