Lovely. My hellebores were just beginning to break through but can't see them now but I think the ones I have are tough so may be OK.

I had this one in my first garden. It's very striking, especially against pale pebbles. :)

Yes Angela they will continue flowers for much longer right into the summer , I also take off the big leaves when they are in flower to show the blooms off much better ... x

Right I will do that, because in the past I have just left them to get on with it, a mistake I know lol....I only remove the leaves on the plain leafed varieties.

By the way, I have the very similar colour, but the name is different. Mine is still in buds.
