Daphne odora seed

They are super fragrant and on slightly warmer winter days a reasonable size plant can be smelt from a good distance away. This plant can be used in a mixed planting or as a stand alone specimen in the garden. If possible plant close to where you will pass regularly in winter, a front or back door location is often a favourite. Can be grown in a pot or other container as long as you ensure the pot is always moist and drains freely. Well crocked unglazed clay pots raised a centimetre or so off the ground are best as they allow moisture and air to pass through the pot. Position to keep the plant in as much sun as possible but shade the roots. Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade, become too packed and choke the roots. I would recommend adding an additional approximate 20\x25 horticultural grit to the compost for improved drainage. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer.
