Talkback: Growing hellebores

Posted: 20/02/2014 at 20:45

Addictive private-party?  I have some 40, 50 or more.....really don't know now.....hellebores all different. Doubles, singles, almost purple foliage varieties.  I have called a (temporary) halt this year to buying any more.  Love em all.   And what better in the garden now?  

HELLO FORKERS!

Bill, that's very sad.  We are all thinking of you.  

We are all here for you as friends, sympathisers and listeners so please make use of us if you need to.

Dove, dove, dove.  There were only  40 made!!  If I gave you one I'd have one less for me.   Maths, see, is something I'm good at!

Not a lover of roses really....well, I can't grow them well enough down here....but that colour and symmetry is superb David.  Think a decent camera is tempting me 

KEF, please don't turn into jack Nicholson .......like the pelargonium.

Betty ranicar is a lovely hellebore KEF.  Hope birthday was a good one.  Pottie too, of course .

My new hostas should come tomorrow or next week.  No tracking info.  

Daffs opening everywhere now....garden springing into life.  Cornwall looks at its best in the spring prob around March time.  Several pots of bulbs....daffs, alliums, tulips and hyacinths .....now showing good growth.  When the obvious gaps in the borders show the bulbs will be planted.  Felt like spring today

Must stop posting for a mo.....have choc encrusted  marzipan, brandy soaked cherries to eat.  Needs must

Loved the pictures of those rhododendrons David.  Just wish I could grow them in my garden. Can only grow them in containers here.  

Next weekend a (relatively) noted gardener down here is showing her hellebores.  It's a yearly thing and it was this lady who introduced me to hellebores in the first place. Hopefully I will be able to get there and early enough to get something special for camera corner
