Oh dear oh dear,,oh dear......

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 08:10 on.    It is a tongue in cheek thread really and it's been fun reading the comments.

 But, on a serious note its all so silly though.  The hype, the silly statements about hard working royalty, how it pays for itself, the idol worship of people we simply do not know and the hysteria is Crazeeee.  The royal family looks at us as far, far, far inferior to them.

Out of interest Marc, how much are they charging you?  My hunch is you will get  are roots or plugs.  A full,size plant on line that will flower well this year will prob cost you less...?

As I understand it, the most delicate part of,a hellebore is around the main stem.  Recall a few years ago being told that so its something I've been aware of.
