Scent has a powerful effect on emotion and mood and a fragrant garden can be a means to health, well-being and pleasure. This four week course covers how we perceive scent and how it can directly affect not only our mood but our physiology. This knowledge can then can be used to good effect in our gardens. If we want somewhere to relax and de-stress or if we want an outside work space where we can be refreshed and invigorated, then there is a plant to fill the brief.
However, we often miss the effect of fragrance in our gardens because it is such a fleeting, ethereal thing so we need to make sure that our gardens are designed to maximise the beneficial effects of this lovely sense.
You are encouraged through the suggested assignments to design your own fragrant space tailored to your own requirements and to share your experience along the way.
