    My 2' diameter sweet box shrub was transplanted 2 years ago. Because the leaves are green and the shrub has flower buds it, seems to have settled in. Most of the local sweetbox are in full fragrance but mine is not. Why has it failed to smell good!

    thanks for your help.

    No smell until the buds open.

    why aren't the buds open on my plant when the other sarcoccoa in the neighbourhood are open.
