Add petunias to your night garden

Are you familiar with night gardens? I remember when visiting my grandparents in my early years, and being greeted by these small white flowers that smelled amazing! They were Nicotiana, also known as tobacco plants.

Many petunias have this same property: their smell accentuates in the evening. You can create a night garden by your window or door and enjoy the amazing fragrance in the evening. One of the most fragrant petunias is the Tumbelina: they create double blooms and come in many colors.

Create a garden edge to your backyard filled with petunias. They’ll keep blooming without much intervention from you: a very low maintenance landscaping idea for busy people who love a well maintained landscape without too much work.

Of course, it helps if you take an hour or so every week to deadhead: this will boost production and will pay dividends for you.
