Kef, I have dug up your hellebore, and younger ones for Mrs garden. Have you got some FYM to enrich the soil or shall I bring you a bag.? Or are you so waterlogged I need to pot it up for a bit?

Moneymaker is an easy to grow, normal size tomato around 100g each. Marmande is a beef steak variety, up to 400g each, but a lot less on the vine. I have not come aross harzfeur before. Have you got a greenhouse or are they going outside?

A parcel has just arrived. 10 plugs of Hellebore washfield doubles. I bought using Tesco vouchers tripled up. They wont flower this year, or next probably, but still I've got plenty of others to be going on with.

Now I really must stop buying hellebores. I forgot about these coming.

The roots will all come from a central point. This point needs to be at soil level, with the bunch of roots splayed out beneath it, and then cover with soil.  Water in well.
