Shirley, you are first on the list for any seed. Now, that reminds me...did you see Christine Walkden talking about germinating them....she said if you use trays of sand, they come up like cress! I shall be trying it as I've never ever succeeded with hellebore seed...and yet they do it so well when left to their own devices!

Karen please will you add me to your 'seed' list? I'd love one of these.

Oh thanks Karen ... we have just watched the programme where Christine talks about the Hellebores ... Bodnant Gardens. What a wonderful place to visit ... one day perhaps! :o)

I am so pleased to have Hellebores flowering again. I really missed them last winter.

And early ones too?? Mine are just leaves at the mo, but such a welcome surprise when the flowers start.....

22 Nov, 2014

 

yes Janey, they often start early up here....they often think it's winter come the end of July....they're often correct!

Wow - stunning! Thanks for the "seed in sand" tip too Karen - sounds worth a try. Added to faves btw :)

I stare at it every day. :)

Karen, I have just opened my RHS 'Garden' magazine and the Helleborus Collection on offer is wonderful! Three of the 'Lady Series' in red, pink and white ... I'm tempted by them ... wonder if you will be too! :o)

:)) think that's the collection I bought Shirley! I have DE REd, purple and picotee. I've yet to see picotee in flower. The DE Red is really pink.

Lol Karen! :o)

What a beauty, love these doubles, none of ours will flower until much later on, probably after Christmas....

26 Nov, 2014

 

Yes, that's the time ours usually flower too!
