When do I cut back my Hellebores?

Posted: 11/12/2013 at 11:52

Depends on the type. H. niger should only have dead leaves removed. H. x hybridus is the one where all the old leaves are removed. I do ours in February though, as I like old leaves to protect the crown over winter.

Nutcutlet, the easiest way is to post a picture of the flowers.

That does look like Charles Lamont.

 

We have Lonicera fragrantissima and L Winter Beauty, both in flower now too.

Let's just give up gardening and wrap ourselves in cotton wool and sit on the couch and watch Donty Mon do it.

And don't get me started on Rose prunings!

Best of luck with seed. Sadly they do not do well from dried seed. To get really good results you need fresh seed sown straight from the plant. Find someone with Hellebores and beg a selection of seeds from them.

Pampas grass leaves have barbs on them, they rip your hands to shreds when they are pulled into the machine.

If you allow the stems of the big Miscanthus to dry, they make fantastic fire lighters for our wood burning stove thing. BUT we have a lot of them! More than we can ever hope to burn.

Shredded stems make wonderful path mulch through our wood though.

The Miscanthus stems will not compost. There are some at the bottom of one of the piles which are the same as they were when I put them down 5 years ago.

All shreddings are used in the garden. We only send things which will not compost or shred to the Council tip. Things like Rose prunings and persistent rooted stuff.
