Gorgeous, this is my favourite - is the smell strong Kathy and does it grow fast? I was thinking of posting a question to ask the best variety for fast growth and strong smell but Im sure you can answer me. I have the yellow ones but they've been so slow to establish and I do prefer this colour.

This is a lovely one Dawn sent to me as a cutting three years ago already at the top of my arbour, it does smell wonderful, semi evergreen too, also took some cuttings off it and got five more plants, could send you some cuttings in the autumn if you like :-)

Whooooo, that would be fabulous Kathy. Any idea of the variety? Thank you.

Sent to me from a swapshop so can't be positive, but after googling thought it looked like Lonicera Periclymenum Belgica, will put myself a reminder so I don't forget :-)

You're a star, thanks Kathy. I need to let you have the sweet woodruff too, was there anything else I had promised.

Oooh forgot about that Dawn, don't think there was aything else, have to put myself reminders, forget who I've promised what,lol.
Think I promised you some drumstick primula seeds, left the seed heads on but hasn't set any seed for some reason:-(,sorry, will try and split and send you a bit of one of the plants if you like.

Dont worry about the drumstick Kathy, thanks very much, as l have lots of primulas, I've grown alot of Florindae :-) I think it may be someone else you promised, lol.
