With the weather changing every day, our gardens don’t know what to do… The  Zenias didn’t do well at all.  They lost their colour within a month and are now unfortunately due to be removed when I get a free weekend.  The Alyssum however seems to love the colder weather.  Even those in pots have filled up and are beautifully overflowing.  I’m still and will always be addicted to their wonderful scent.

That wonderful scent of honey filling the space around this plant is what makes it one of my favourites for this time of year.  I’m not sure why, but I seem to do better with the white variety and not so well with the purple.  Great clusters of little white flowers contrasting with the bright green foliage means they’re always a nice addition wherever you choose to place them.

If you have empty pots lying around, or if a neglected bed is looking at you every time you’re in the garden, this is the perfect friend for the next few months.  It grows beautifully, smells like a breeze from paradise and is very easy to care for (water it when it doesn’t rain).  You shouldn’t pay more than 1KD for 7 shrubs.  I only have little space and above are my 7 which joined us last Saturday.

Enjoy.
