This morning I received a package in the post – some hellebore seed very kindly sent by bjs. I had to wait until this afternoon to sow them as I had an appointment in town. When I got back I had a PROBLEM!!! – seed compost, pots, labels, grit all in the greenhouse.

Obviously I would have to time my incursion carefully between visits of adults to chicks. Next PROBLEM!!! I couldn’t see the b***** birds!!! My appointment had been at the opticians where I had drops put in to open my pupils to take photographs of the back of my eyes – and everything was blurred.

OH to the rescue, birds’ visits sighted and successful incursion made, seed sown, adult robins still visiting, everybody happy. Phew!!!

Glad you got it sorted in the end.....

Mission accomplished, Shirley and Linda.
So am I, Daisy - seeds are very important, there's nothing like seeing the first seedlings poking their heads through the compost. I was quite uncontrollable when my first paeonia seed germinated after two years - followed in short order by five more over the next two weeks. I was like a dog with two tails, lol.

Well done Wagger, seems you need the invisable cape of Harry Potters.

LOL Sixpence, that cape would be welcomed by us all !!!
Well done Wagger !

Job well done, now waiting for germination. Hope your eyes will be ok.

That cape would certainly come in handy, lol.
They're absolutely fine, Marguerite - just a precautionary check because of rotten genes from my father. I don't expect to see seedlings until next spring.

Thought that's when next spring was, Bjs. LOL I'll make sure they're in a shady spot - I suppose I could pop the pots in amongst the existing hellebores, they're certainly in shade.
