Planting Fragrant Trees and Shrubs for a Year-Round Scented Garden

In addition to being striking additions to the landscape, fragrant trees and shrubs add a lovely scent to your garden. Drinking ice tea on the garden patio while Jasmin is in full bloom makes summer nights truly magical, and a whiff of perfumed Clematis in the full swing of autumn will make you appreciate the beauty of the season even more. After all, sweet-smelling flowers are for year-round enjoyment: fragrant gardening is not only reserved for summer and spring flowering cultivars. With the right selection of scented garden plants, you can have a fragrant garden throughout the seasons.

While fragrant trees and shrubs will certainly make your garden smell and look wonderful, it is not the only benefit of scented garden plants. Fragrant gardening provides much-needed sustenance for beneficial pollinators, especially in the urban city environments where blooms are not in abundance, and during autumn and winter, when scented flowers are usually scarce. Many gardeners are actively aware of their role in the preservation of wildlife through the cultivation of scented garden plants and choose plants specifically to provide pollen for bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
