Growing Patchouli and Aromatic Plants

(Photo from wikipedia)

I ran across a patchouli plant at a local, independently owned grocer I love to shop. I'd never seen one before. So, I rubbed a leaf and smelled it. It smelled woody and exactly like the oil so many people wear as perfume. So, I did a little web search and learned a few things. 


I found out that patchouli is easy to grow. It's also an insect repellant! Anything that smells so good and helps get rid of pesky mosquitos is a good thing in my book.


One article I found mentioned aromatic gardens. I love the smell of our citrus blossoms and gardenias, and especially jasmine. So, again, there's an attraction to the concept on my part.


So, I wonder: how many of you like aromatic plants and cultivate aromatic gardens? Do you think we should have a group here on Zoobird about growing aromatic plants?
