Glad you are feeling little,better Matty

Nice joke Sir Woody 

Cold windy day today but still a way above freezing comditions elsewhere I guess  Temps of 5 rising to 8 -10 tomorrow.  

Leaves are dropping off dogwoods now to reveal those nice red "sticks".  They will provide nice backdrop and variation for the hellebores later.  Mahonia charity flowering now, camellia and rhodo, etc buds a plenty and signs of daff growth. Wallflowers amd stocks threatening to flower.   Who said winter is dull?

Hiya lyn

I know where you are coming  from but if you are buying a bare root plant it's not a big jump to buy a fully grown version.  It's about time.  I want it to perform this year not in two,years' time.  As I said I still have the satisfaction of seeing my own seedlings grow too and a couple of those have been quite lovely.  buying three plugs of the same variety when one full sized flowering plant costs the same....well. For me it's a no-brainer.

I have propagated and begged my full share of plants,over the years but now want quality.  No matter what the size, huge thought goes Imto every plant I grow.  

I do envy those who propagate by gathering seed (I'm a cuttings man) because I simply have no such long term confidence.  Here and now for me.  I will get one more hellebore soon for flowering in feb or march 2014...why wait for a plug or bare root to show the odd flower possibly in 2016?
