Lifting hellebores

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 10:18

Hellebores make new roots from late September onwards, so that is considered the best time to dig up and split plants. Even then they are not always happy about it. Do not let the roots dry out whilst doing it. I tend to put them in a bucket of water until I re-pot them.

They do not come from cuttings in the true sense.

Seed is a good option, if you do not mind a mixed bag and can wait a few years for them to flower.

The Lamium is Lamium orvala. Odd plant in that snails ignore the mature one, but decimate the babies that I have taken from it.

Viburnum plicatum mariesii about to flower.

Plant ID - probably a weed or wildflower

Viola, depending on the size of the flowers, it could be V. riviniana, the common Dog Violet, or less likely Viola odirata, Sweet violet. The leaves look a bit smooth for the latter though.

Just be careful that they are Lily beetles. There is a Red Cardinal beetle which may be mistaken for Lily beetle. They are gardeners friends not enemies.

Perfume Viburnum.

Our V. juddii is very highly scented.

The most scented one we know of is Charis, that is a much smaller growing shrub. Another lower growing and very scented one is V.Mohawk.

We have about 25 different Viburnums in the garden.

Oxalis-but which one?

Oxalis acetosella is a possibility. Native to Britain.
