What the heck - my purse isn't big enough - but one can dream

Verdun - I am sure after googling it that it is my farthers type of hellebore. I will take a picture when I'm home next. He is fed up as he has baby ones popping up all over and said he will soon cull. In the mean time take a look at my hellebore in full glory, it's not the new bargain little ones it's the hellebore I boufht for £5 from a lady that wasnt sure what to do with them. I'm in love with it!! .....

I went out to check my two new ones as I put them in the raised bed till I plant them. Now that's sad!! My pink one from last year looks like yours but with slight variegation on leaves. My new one is at same stage too. Well one is but my £3 one is behind !

Wooooooo hoooo today I got two lo key little hellebourous hybrid a spotted red and a white cream with spots. They were in the sales at 33% off. One has flowers nearly open and the other not quite. They were 4.01 and 3.23 each so a real bargain. Not doubles unfortunately but at least I'm sneaking more into my boardes. 

 

Again in now just to know if I cut off leaves or don't!!!!

Lawn revival got me thinking

My front lawn is awful, full if weeds and green but in summer turns purple with yellow due to weeds including dandilion!!! I have tried getting out there with a knife believe me. So question is what to do. This year I watered in verdol I think and nothing happened at all. Do I try again or get a company to square it up to kick me off. 

 

What costs are we talking for companies, do any of you use???

Just seen a stunning looking flower on the garden revival programme called a cleome. After a quick look they seem to be very tall 3-4 ft. So does anyone know of shorter varieties. What are opinions, are they worth growing???
