What is an all year round garden?

Tetley, you have seen my photo!  My claim is 

Sounds lovely raisingirl. 

Hellebores with nodding flower (not drooping ones)

I have several with semi upward facing flowers...will take a few pictures.  

soil and situation make a difference too...plant on higher ground or near a wall (if the soil is reasonably moist there).  

Niger does have flowers more upward facing but they lack the class of some of the hybrid hellebores 

The doubles overcome this to an extent too because their flowers look so good from above. Good doubles are so floriferous. 

My advice is to avoid "bargain" ofters and go online to Ashwoods for example.  Also to see them in flower.

Agree with you Hortico about the "50 million" quotes.  How on earth can this make sense?  these figures are simply silly 

however, fascinating prog.  Nature is amazing but oh so cruel too

Tetley, not only do our gardens represent the personalities and circumstances but also the beauty of the owners...I think my own garden is beautiful

We get nowhere with your attitude aym.  The West is as bad as Putin.....the invasion of Iraq!

Someone somewhere needs to do something to stop this relentless drive to war. I cannot see this "someone"

Lovely Nut...wish I had your space.  Can't grow snowdrops like that.  A natural garden;  a beautiful one
