I love the scent of Sweet Alyssum in the summer sun. It self-sows abundantly in my garden. I usually pull out a lot in spring and trim with scissor during the summer. I didn’t do much of either this summer.
After hurricane Irene left us a little soggy but without any damage, we are having beautiful gardening weather so I decided to tidy the big patch of alyssum.
As I started to pull up the plants, I realized how long they were - about 16 to 24 inches.
I ended up with a bale of hay sized pile and a little more room for the Dusty Miller.
