Red, check out helleborus Corsicus.  It's a different sort of hellebore.  It's a bigger plant and treated slightly differently.  The leaves are a nice feature too....quite architectural in a way ......and the flowers are lime green tending to form clusters.  Doesnt seem to get any of the usual hellebore diseases.  Mine is in full flower now...has been before Xmas.

Morning KEF.  Exciting isn't it?  

Cytisus plant - will it recover?

Morning Bex 

It prob will be fine.  Best outside though even in winter. ,are there snails etc in the pot?  Offen if you tip out the plant you will find snails in the pots.  

I think maybe ??ou should leave it a little longer where it is, if there is good light, but then get it outside in early spring.  A few slug pellets or, better, a regular check for snails will help your plant grow. If the pot is small I would pot into larger one in the spring.

don't waste my time plant!

No, don't cut off leaves if they are small plants Red.  Just let them grow.  A hamdful or two of mushroom compost around them would be beneficial

Hello Marion.

Would love to read your "writings".  I think everyone here would too.

improving the lawn

Hello artycnris

You said your lawn needs a lot of work to keep it in reasonable  so I guess grass does grow fairly well there....??  

I would not add rotting lead mould to your lawn...it is best elsewhere.  On your lawn it is likely to do more harm than good.  

For me, I would rake, spike and feed.  Raking and spiking before spring when ground is not too wet.  Feeding in spring with granular lawn feed.

Do you cut your grass hard?   Too low a level is not good.  I cut my grass twice a week in summer...takes very little time......and the mower blades are set at a reasonably high level.
