This Was Amazing This Year!

The Night Blooming Jasmine Framed with a Peppermint Scented Geranium!

There's That Peppermint Scented Geranium Again!

Now It's Blocked by the Kaffir Lime!

Blooming At Night!
The jasmine suffered while we were gone, but stress is a good thing when you want something to bloom in a container.  If all you have are green leaves and no blossoms, let it be a little stressed (e.g. not watering it consistently or fertilizing it too much) and see the results.  It worked for us.  I bought this night blooming jasmine for The Herbal Husband several years ago at Well-Sweep Herb Farm.  The container that it is in as just got bigger and bigger!  It is a delicious smell at night when it is in bloom!  Maybe more about the peppermint scented geranium in another post!  It is going to be transplanted before it comes in for the winter.  Rainy here and a cool down for the weekend.  Made rose geranium jelly this morning.  May have to buy another bottle of wine to make more.  Talk to you later.

It's really good, Ros! Click under the Herbal Jelly Recipes to get the recipe or maybe I'll do a link for it.
