Thanks gingly gangly. I was actually going to ask about the hellebore seeds, do I just leave them to self seed or collect the seeds and sow them?
Sorry Tracey - haven't been on for a while! I do a mixture of both. I leave some seeds on the plant to drop and germinate the next February (you'll find the seedlings near the parent plant) and I gather some and sow them in pots, cover in grit and leave outside. They still won't germinate till next Feb, but you might find them easier to manage in pots. Either way, you can pot the seedlings on and eventually you'll have lots of hellebores! Does take patience though - they flower about two years after germinating, so three years in all!
