What the hellebores is going on?

Posted: 27/03/2016 at 15:44

I have the same as you Verd - a couple flowered before Christmas, a couple are flowering now, and the rest have not flowered at all.  Thought I had lost them, but all are now pushing up fresh leaves.  i thought maybe I had overdone the mulching with leafmould in the autumn, but maybe it is a weather thing.  Fingers crossed for next year

I grow bell banks ....but as I said above, it is not a strong grower for me.  Still alive and flowering, but only one show in early summer - unlike Mrs B, which goes on and on all year

I follow Monty'sDog on twitter. I only own up to this embarassing fact because he has just announced that eight (yes 8) episodes of GW will be an hour long in 2017 ......steps in the right direction folks

Gorgeous photos Berghill - love blazing sunset and Mai Tai.

I have a few, but the ubiquitous Mrs Bradshaw is a much stronger grower tham the rest (Bells bank, tequlia sunrise and flames of P)

 Just got "lost" on the forum and posted a completely random post on another thread.  But have now found a compass, regained my bearings, and will repeat myself here.

Too wet for outdoor gardening so have replanted my terrarium ...bought about 30 years ago on a trip to a craft fair with my Mum
