Regular hoeing and improving drainage will get rid of it in the garden.  Move your tree seedlings into somewhere with better light and again, improving drainage should help there as well.   It's not deep rooted so you can scrape a lot away with your fingers which will help too.

Thanks Hosta   

DD - it's difficult isn't it?  We so want to help friends find a solution ... but (speaking from experience here) I think all we can do in these circumstances is to be a listening ear, giving them the chance to sort out their thoughts and emotions and consider their options.   ((hugs))

This is the Broadleigh pic and description http://www.broadleigh-bulbs-spring.co.uk/shop/prodshow/HELLEBORUS_THIBETANUS/helltibitanus.html The pic's a bit fuzzy but the pic in the paper catalogue shows pale pink petals with darker pink veining.

I saw them in the Broadleigh catalogue which arrived yesterday, but their website says they're out of stock now

The website does say that they're easier than was at first thought
