Lyn, Bosvigo  Gardens dabble in hellebore breeding and supposedly last  year there were some excellent ones.  

For me dividing hellebores is done according to my whim.   Usually I do this after flowering with no problems

had some excellent hellebores from Ashwoods ....expecting full flowering this year from a nice darkish yellow planted in 2012 as large plants.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Lily, these things work out.  It's the worry of what MIGHT be isn't it but take it as it comes

just to say Punkdoc keep as positive as possible....obvious but not easy.  I can get depressed and been in very bad places as most everyone does  and it's difficult during these cold dark months. Maybe the chink of light with the lengthening days next week!

hiya Lyn, no I haven't .  Will now though.  A fairly local hellebore grower/breeder has an open day in early spring too.  I think she had some spectacular unusual ones last year.  Have to be disciplined now though........I have a nice balance right now throughout the garden .....they provide good foils for summer anything more will have to be special.  

Looking out for a dark green variety....not sure if a good one is available yet
