One of my helebores

Posted: 14/04/2013 at 18:48
Have got a small bed of hellebores on the sunnier side of the garden which I'm going to dig up and move to the shadier side where I'm sure they'll be happier. Just have to steel myself to cut off flower heads first.

Need help indentifing this plant/ shrub etc

@The Doctor - if you've got some leaf mould lying around, you could pot them up in that mixed about 50/50 with MPC. And label them! I'd leave them somewhere shady, and keep them moistish.

Well, mythical creatures are probably not the culprits! I have intermittent problems with rats, but living in a semi rural area, I've got quite pragmatic about it.
Do you feed birds by any chance? The reason that I'm asking is that spilled bird food can attract rats as an easy source of food.

I'm still interested to know what Supernanauna's soil is like. I have very free draining soil here, and have a constant battle to keep them in check.
