Talkback: Growing hellebores

Well, not counting the ones I had before that seeded around, I got three versions of H. niger for the front, a double queen, Mrs Betty Ranicar, Shooting star, a harvington pink spotted, A kingston cardinal (double), and then from Ashwoods  i got a single yellow,a double yellow, two double pink speckled, 2 neon singles, a double picotee.....and 10 plugs of washfield doubles from T&M to grow on.   ..oh and a silver dollar with pretty silver leaves.   I guess I got Helleboritis,  but not as bad as Verdun.

 I've just got to build the stone wall around the new bed under the Oak.(about 3 ft high... the wall not the Oak)

They will be too warm in the kitchen, hence the lankiness. They probably need more light as well.  Early sowings in a polytunnel with no heat are usually alright, but not the kitchen windowsill.

I think yellow is a Spring colour. . It cheers me up after Winter. Those first tete a tetes are wonderful. I have a few hundred of those as well.

These I can see from the living room window, so I don't have to go out in bad weather, but can still see spring. Summer stuff is further up the garden, The magnolia will flower, and daffs, and when they have gone they are just a green background to the rest of the garden.

Mums birthday is today, tomorrow me, my mum, my two sisters and two of her sisters are going out for lunch. I hope the weathers better than last Wednesday.
