Look, I know what you mean Red.
In spring the GC will have hellebores in flower. Why not ask if they are expecting doubles? They should be lot less than £15. Or are there any secreted in their bargain clearance bays? I found such a shrub recently that way.....the exact thing I wanted at a bargain price of £4 less another 25%.......£3. Normally £12. 99 I think.
You won't "lose" it. Or will it have a "mardy".
I guess I get carried away at times but I really do think a couple of really good plants to flower this season is better value in the long run than buying several for the future.
Domt be anoxious though about your garden. I have a feeling you will get it just right in a little time. Enjoy your garden
