In the space of a few weeks I've acquired 4 hellebores! In my last garden I had one H. Niger that did quite well, and in a garden I had back in the '80s I had a couple, they were lovely and I enjoyed them, but I didn't feel the need to do any more than pot up little seedlings and bring them on and give them to friends.
Now, since 'meeting' some of you (you know who you are ) I get an uncontrollable urge to buy a hellebore whenever I see one.
I now have H Niger 'Christmas Carol', H Niger 'Snow Love', H Lividus 'Silver Edge' and today's acquisition H. orientalis 'Tutu'.
They're all still in their pots - I'm planning to plant them in the shady bank under one of the ash trees - any tips, comments, suggestions?
