All of mine apart from 1 have flowered and even the poorly 1 is in flower, so I must be doing something right. They are one of my favourite flowers.

I will dig in some chicken manure pellets around them as well later.

 I have planted them in the garden. I will wait and see now if there is any improvement. 

Thanks for all the replies

They haven't been in pots log enough  to be pot bound and only 1 in the pot so not congested.

I think that they need some feed but I don't know which. I have planted it in the garden now have sprinkled some Epson salt around in case it's lacking in  magnesium  and sulphur

It could have had too much rain I guess.


 magnesium and sulfur,

Thanks for the reply.

Not old leaves and they have been watered. It has been outside in the rain.

I recently bought a couple more Hellebores plants which at the moment are in pots.

One of them has it's leaves starting to fade to a  very light green verging on becoming yellow, I guess it is lacking something but can anyone tell me what it would be. 

I have a few planted in the garden but this is the first one than I have going like this. 

Australian Tree fern

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 15:53


As in the heading, my tree fern is separating in the crown, the once roundish crown in now forming into 3, so the middle is bare. I can only think it may be that it's been too dry over winter. It has been in a garage, as we moved in November and had nowhere else to keep away from frost.

Can anyone else throw any light on it or give me tips on trying to get it to grow in the middle again?

Sorry about the double post, I don't know how to delete one of them


Apparently they live here in the south west, talking to a man that was close by who told me he has them in his garden
