Does anyone know how long it is before a new hellibore plant flowers?  I thought I read somewhere it is 7 years!

Discodave- have a very happy birthday. Great selection on Hellebore, how can you not fall in love?

Verdun- that sounds wonderful, a picture would be great.

Figrat- what a beautiful Clematis, it has been added to my wish list. The Clematis and Hellebore look as if they were designed to go together.

Busy-Lizzie- the yellow is really cheerful. None are flowering in my garden yet. Your snowdrops are great. They make mine look pityfull.

Hollie-hock- everything in my 'garden'has to grow in pots.

LorraineP- welcome. This really is a great site.

I really love seeing everyones pics.

Lorraine, here is what the RHS says about propagating helleboures. 2 -3 years to flower from sowing seed.

Happy belated dave

Come on Verdun a video tour would be great

Can't do video. Wot u like? Will dog out camera tomorrow.
21/02/2013 at 08:52
dog ?
21/02/2013 at 09:00
Always doing this Bunnysplanet......I mean DIG out camera. ,ha ha . Like most gardeners I guess I'm a bit sheepish about showing off plants but the way to look at it is to show other gardeners what certain plants look like, right?

Definately good to do, a lot of us see things in books or tv we don't have ourselves or may never have but to see things in others gardens is more natural , seeing how they sit amongst other plants gives us ideas...certainly me as I'm still very new to this but want to learn and understand.
I would post pics if had anything worth posting ...as yet I don't .

Verdun you've been promising photos for ages and you give such good advice about perennials  - please dog out the camera soon or what about a last year's photo?

Is Verdun being coy?

21/02/2013 at 17:53
I have decided that this year I wont be chopping everything too quickly. I will be leaving seedpods and heads as a bit of interest. Nothing really happening in the garden. My alliums are up but they are in pots. Can i move them in flower into the ground? Last years Aquillegias are starting to shoot but other than that...nowt
