whoops - snap! Paul, just dropped in (to get warm)..saw the post re clematis cuttings..

Bob, any advice would be gratefully received.

Although buying in plants for new bed being able to grow my own would be, well, not only a bonus but amazing!

 thanks ..something to think about...I will look more closely at the plants tomorrow..curiosity aroused.

Be interesting to see if they do flower this year Lyn. As said I do take them for granted somewhat  ... they always appear on time.

Talkback: Growing hellebores from seed

Having potted on plantlets from my hellebores it has taken two years for four leaves to grow to any size.

They haven't died off in the two winters and are bright and shiny. Maybe they will flower this year.

Really haven't considered splitting the mature plant as it seem ok as it is. More plantlets to pot-up mind.

Assume the colour will  be true to the mother plant whether split or planlet. I say this becausemine is the deep burgandy colour (sorry tired mind, cant think of the name)

From a plantlet my neighbour had given the colour was  a softer shade.

Something to look-up tomorrow....speak later.
