    I'm being a bit cheeky here (as usual :snork:) - many years ago, I had quite a few lemon scented geraniums (and I am pretty sure I had a couple of peppermint scented ones) which used to give a lovely scent whenever someone brushed against them or the breeze blew in the window through the foliage. Stupidly, I left them in the flat I was in when I moved.

    I would really like some again, and was wondering if anyone would have one that they would be willing to take a cutting of for me? I will of course cover all postage costs etc.

    Hi FC,

    I'm just sat here going through old posts and came across this.
    I was wondering if you'd managed to get a Lemon scented one as I have one and I could start a couple off for you if you want .

      I've got some too and wouldn't mind doing some cutting swaps.

      Awww, thank you for the offer - as it happens, I treated myself to a dose of plants from ScentedGeraniums.co.uk, and now have various scents and smells kicking about. In fact, I must pop them into bigger pots shortly.

        Glad you got sorted :)

        I'll have to have a look at that site as I used to have a Tomentosum Chocolate Peppermint. I'd love to get another one.

          You won't be disappointed - I put an entry for them in the GC Business Directory; really nice people to do business with, and lovely healthy wee plants too :blue thumb:

              recall getting a few of those years ago. the lemon scented etc. but as they are annuals for me. I don't wish to deal with those through the winter, so chucked them.
