Daphne

Daphne can be a finicky plant, but if you can get them to take, then you will be rewarded with the most beautiful white, cream and pink flowers and scent from mid-Winter to early Spring.

Daphnes like morning sun and afternoon shade. They need good drainage, regular watering (but not too much), and benefit from the occasional iron-rich fertiliser. 

 You can grow them in pots, but watch that they don’t dry out. They make a lovely low hedge in the garden, if you plant a few.
