Can you tell me the name of a lovely smelling honeysuckle. We used to have one years ago in another house but never knew it's name. We've tried a couple of varieties but haven't come up with one that smells lovely.



Wait a little longer and but one that is in flower, then you can be sure of the scent. Or google 'scented honeysuckle' and read Chris Beardshaw's article on the Guardian pages.

there are lots of varieties but I don't think you can beat the old cottage favorite ' woodbine' -- on a summer evening !

The variety 'Graham Thomas' is reckoned to be one of the best for scent
