Talkback: Growing hellebores from seed

Posted: 23/03/2013 at 17:56
I just put my seeds in a tray of compost once they were dried out a bit, covered with grit, (see, I learn from carol) left them outside tucked up in sheltered corner, and this winter up they popped, all of them.
Some seed company s make things sound so complicated.
I don't think they will flower for about 4 years though.

If it's coming out from under your house, I would have it out, they grow quite thick stalks, it could damage your brick work. Probably a seed dropped by a bird.

Why do the mods say that Brumbull has to stop posting then.?

anyone else think this 'extended' winter, means a good summer

No! The jet stream is probably not going to alter position this year.

The aquilegias I sowed were off a plant that my daughter call maroon, If it flowers this year, I will post a piccy.

Will the hellebores and aquilegias come true from collecting our own seeds.

Thats what I did last year, and they all germinated, I will cut the losses and collect fresh this year.
