December is the best time to cut them back .... Plus it stops black spot some new varieties onto the market are sterile... I have two large hellibores in my garden with 40+ flowers on both of them and to be honest have only ever had 2 seedlings ( one last year and one this year) that have come through that I haven't accidentally weeded.... If u want more sow the seeds as soon as they pop then forget about them next feb they should sprout!!!! Who knows what colour combinations you may get!!!

I'm looking at buying some (more) grass seed as my lawn has suffered badly this year... I am thinking of buying a grass seed with micro clover. Does anyone have experience of using grass seed with micro clover and if so what are your thoughts? The mix is : 


Strong creeping red fescue 
Slender creeping red fescue, 
Smooth stalk meadow grass 

 any feedback greatly received!!!

Barbara how many leaves do they have? As I have said 4/5 leaves is always best. Are you planting straight into the poly tunnel( jealous!!!)? What are temperatures like in there at the moment?

Evening all.... Mrs g I have one of those pa pramic things on my iphone must try tomorrow. Well I have had a few surprises in the garden today. One of the astrantia that i bought at crocus last year that's now in the woodland garden has sent up leaves a good foot away ( literally my size 6!!) fr the mother plant. Considering it's only been planted avout 5 weeks I'm impressed but didn't realise they spread this far!! ( it's astrantia major claret!)? Is this normal? And whilst weeding out the ever increasing bond weed I found this

 A self seeded hellibore baby. ( considering the amount of seeds I'm always surprised there aren't more) happily it's a way from the mother plant so will leave it to play among the bluebells!!!!
