I don't need a landscape gardener (I haven't exactly got a landscape)but I would like to pick Jason's brains if that is not too cheeky?
I wish to buy the Jasmine flower - "Lady of the Night" for my garden. Very heady perfume in the evenings and tiny tiny trumpet green/white flowers. I have been told that the garden shops in Fethiye have everything you need but because of my language problem I need to know the name in Turkish. I was told once that it was called Malissa, but I am not sure. When I look that up on the internet it means Lemon Balm to us, and that is not what I want.
Anne I have got the latin name for the variety I want now thanks, I am going to have a look opposite Migros to see if I can get a couple. I will also be able to pick a little sample to compare before I go, so I should be OK. Thanks Kadin that will also help out.
Nice one Teresa! I know the feeling It's a bit like wardrobe syndrome isn't it. I spent hours once like woman possessed looking for a pair of boots round the stores...walked me little socks off I did ....... a week later I was rummaging in the wardrobe for something completely unconnected and found a perfectly good pair of boots from the winter before, so I need not have wasted my money[:0] I could have kicked myself metaphorically speaking!
Teresa - You sure you have 4 bushes? Sue says we have just had one planted and a Jasmine! I remember from my S.Africa days that Jasmine was an easy one to get new plants off. That was how I obtained many of the plants I had there as it was a large piece of land to fill up. The little bit of land we have now is just right to cultivate!
We do indeed - no doubt at all. I knew what it looked like as I had seen it many times over the years, I was just unsure about buying it. These bushes were in when we bought in January and the gardener stripped them down to bare twigs and I hadn't got a clue what they were until we went back in september and they were in flower. If you want to take a cutting help yourself when you go over. The malissa flower is so tiny and insignificant but the perfume is so heady and wonderful - to me it is the smell of Turkey.
We have a jasmine as well which covers the pergola at the entrance. We have wanted to go through a whole season to see what was in the garden before planting anything else.
Looking forward to February and planting one or two more bits. I did save money and a lot of effort as well Kadin.
