I love them, I've been pining for one for years lol.

Shame they don't like your garden, I'll be gutted if they don't like mine.

I keep looking to see if mine has reappeared yet...but no luck so far, keep hoping it has survived the winter as it's such a gorgeous plant and that smell too.

Hope yours has reappeared. I lost mine in a bad winter, not replaced it as yet. Not sure a chocolate scented plant is a good idea with the dog lol.

Nope, I well n truly lost it, should've dug it up! I have 6 little ones coming on now and will plant them out soon. It's funny you mention dogs and chocolate as my dog loves choc but has never bothered with this one, maybe they can tell the difference between that and the real stuff, they do have a fantastic sense of smell.

Oh dear. Well at least you have some baby plants going.

Hmmm that's interesting about your dog not being bothered. I may have another go then. I might wait until I have the option of moving the plant to the front garden though lol.
