Steve - I agree with Fidget - sounds like a scam I've heard of.  Phone your bank on the number you always use.

URGENT orchid suddenly lost all leaves

Mine only get watered once every couple of weeks, and then just a little - about half a cook's measuring cup.  They've been flowering for four years so far, throwing up new flower spikes regularly.  They've had a little Baby Bio Orchid fertiliser - probably once each summer.  Sometimes the leaves go brown and I take them off but they soon grow new ones.

I find they thrive on neglect

I think I've fallen in love

I've got plenty of H. orientalis, foetidus and ericsmithii doing well here - I just wondered whether the thibetanus were fussier re acidity/alkalinity - given that they appear to be the only Chinese hellebores grown in Western Europe, and relatively new at that. 

I've found this which describes and pictures the blooms better than the earlier links

http://www.hazlescrossfarmnursery.co.uk/hellebore%20species%20t-v.html

it warns that the leaves are prey to slugs and snails as they're not as leathery as other hellebores.

Just checked Met Office site - now it says 'severe gales' and -3C    Hatches are battened, plants are protected as much as possible without a greenhouse. The survivors will survive - those that don't will be replaced with something tougher.  I'm not going out there with more fleece and bubblewrap in this rain

Hosta  - cheers 

No good asking nicely...

Re PMs - hopefully the work the techies are doing on re-modelling the forum will mean that it's much more accessible for tablets and phones etc, and everyone will be able to do everything.  Not long to go now ............ hopefully
