Hellebores - when to feed

Posted: 20/03/2013 at 07:27

Brilliant Q & A's thanks to you all. Having neglected my hellebores for a few years I'm suprised that they have given such a good show. Just re-potting last years plantlets and expecting more to pass on to our gardening group.

Thanks, it seems drastic - but can see the logic in getting the stems. Should get a flower this year so will know which type for sure.

My container clamatis, named 'Aldi' (due to lost label), is slow growing but  thriving on bonemeal - this used because I didn't mulch the pot and not pruned yet . Twined around a wigwam of sticks it appears to be about a metre in length - I have great hopes for it.

Clematis Should I get 1 or 2

Cairnsie, many thanks for those recommendations as I'm  thinking of the deeper colours. The montanas sound right for the screening I need. Also considering an evergreen 'Cirrhosa Ourikavalla' again to give some winter colour/cover  to the fence.

Thanks Verdun for the timely advice re preparation before planting. I'm fortunate to have the space to dig deep. Would appreciate any suggestions for the front of the border - thanks.
