I like molly shoots. Nice dusky pink with a bit of  dusty bloom.

Shouldn't it be in the ground now?

 I had 10 hellebore plugs from T&M last year. 3 have flower buds, I have donated them to Mums revitalised flower bed. They should be doubles.

Leylandii hedges

Leylandii will not resprout from brown wood.
