I think there is a slight fragrance. But I realy can't tell much at the moment I'm so stuffed up with hayfeaver :(

i always say you get more flys with honey than vinegar, my husband says he'd get way more with chicken poop :lol:

hope your hayfeaver goes away soon, not much that's worse.
i used to get it 9 months of they year, i cured myself with a warm saline irrigation through the passages every day, feels awful but it works, takes about 6 weeks to notice the effect, that's how long it takes the nose hairs to grow back.

Pretty little flower. Be interesting to see if it sets seed, that's if you want to leave it on that long.
A 'tea' made from soaking fenugreek seeds in water overnight is also good for hayfever. Helps build the immune system to fight it.
If you leave the seeds to sprout they can be added to salads or sandwiches. Not the most pleasant taste tho'.

Apparently they will HG,

Thanks for the Hayfeaver tips!

Ive tried the Saline up the nose to help ease things on a particularly bad day - I lli have to try the fengigreek seed "tea: and see how that works.

I have been lucky though sinc ethe bush fires in canberra the hayfeaver has been no where near as bad - the pine dust was a major contributor to my discomfort.

Looks like a very happy and healthy plant :-)
