Wonderful scent

I do love skimmias – I was working in a garden this morning, and the skimmias were giving off the most wonderful scent. They really don’t seem to mind a chalky garden too much, as long as there is a good depth of topsoil. Evergreen, red berries, scent, compact growth habit, it really is worthwhile.  It does benefit from a yearly feed and mulch, as the leaves can become sickly otherwise.
