The role of scent in design
When you are designing a garden is this one of the elements you consciously include and plan for?
In the unit on garden design that I teach to my 7/8 year old students, they design a fairy garden. One of the elements I have them consider is scent. One of the reasons I did this is because my mother has complained for years that the scent is being bred out of plants and she is always looking for heritage versions of plants with the smells she remembers.
