Nothing to lose Rosa. I would expect success with the cornus, never had any luck with clematis at any time. Wonder if I could do the same with a variegated rhamnus that broke under the weight of snow.
Good idea Tim
I'll check mine out this weekend
Any time when it's not frozen or completely saturated should do it. If you take them with some soil they won't know they've been moved.
Can't help with the little holes, sorry.
It is a bit addictive but I still only grow the singles with hanging heads. I'm not so attracted to the newer ones.
I haven't noticed that but it may be so. If you've got any of the doubles they may not. I've never examined a double hellebore but a lot of double flowers are sterile
They'll seed about well if you're a selective weeder. You get to recognise them very quickly and their usually very close under the parent which is a bit of a giveaway.
You get to a point when they come up like weeds. They seem to come fairly true to the parent but I do dump the dirty pinks.
Found a hellebore. It's the native one H. foetidus
I like it. I like anything that flowers now. It's just under a window so I can see it without going out in the cold. Hellebores are coming along nicely, have to make sure I take so pics.
I like the really dark ones though the lighter ones make more impact in the garden. And the ones with the dark rim and dark spots inside.
Couldn't find a hellebore picture. Iris stylosa is out though. Might even remember what it's called now if I think about it.
