She just took me to the garden centre and I bought plants with no actual use other than looking pretty and smelling nice. But yay! Lavender! Clematis! Roses!

I'm not sure. But it smelled really, really nice.

Chez, she didn't make you buy the plants, but agree it was a bit rotten if she know you are susceptible. At least they should grow for years and give you pleasure for a long time, so worth while.

I like lavender. And roses. There are worse pretties to buy (at least they don't need dusting)

It is surprising how some people react to gunpoint, Mistress Rose-buy these plants or the tyres get it!

Lavender and rose petals are both useful in culinary exploits. Clematis....pffff... I have managed to kill every single one I have ever planted.

roses are functional, security hedge, medicine,flavouring,food(super high vit c in the hips),food for pollinators etc etc .

clematis is functional,medicine ,food for pollinators
