When do I cut back my Hellebores?

Posted: 11/12/2013 at 13:28

I have flower buds just emerging on some of my hellebores.  So, without their leaves they can easily be appreciated as they elongate.

Hiya think again and then again about planting this.  It's the roots UNDERGROUND that are the problem.  The more you prune too the more likely it is that roots will escape to every part of your garden.  Not really a garden plant in my opinion.  Once established it will be very difficult to eradicate.

Matty.....do you mean euphorbia?  I grow a pink n cream variegated eryngium but would jump at a red eryngium!

So James we will keep an eye out for a red faced guy driving a bright pink jeep

Yes, it does sound like over watering.

Hmmmmmm...Dove.   Don't want to hear too much about cricket down under.  The Aussies know we are beaten, thrashed, humiliated........

Hello forkers

Lovely morning here.  

MrsG, eryngiums do not take too kindly to be being moved.  I have done it with mixed results, losing a beautiful Jade Frost .....lovely variegated variety with unique flower colour......being the biggest casualty.  

Hey Matty, hope eyes improve soon 

James, can't you don a disguise when you drive that pink jeep?

Fidget, no leave the leaves on.  Slightly different.  Remove old leaves stems n flowers at same time....ie after flowering in spring

Removing privet hedge

Posted: 09/12/2013 at 20:44

Nut, I have memories of using cars to remove trees and shrubs.  And bills 

Mrs G, that privet will regrow.  You could easily rejuvenate it.  ??

Removal shouldn't really be too difficult. Usually when the first is removed the subsequent ones are much easier.  Crowbar, spade and fork plus secateurs for stubborn roots.
