Hellebore Leaves Problem

Posted: 12/08/2014 at 09:00

My Hellebores offen flower during summer too......don't think they look quite so good so usually remove them .    Hellebores for winter/spring for me 

Whats happening?

You sound contented smokin.....

Im a 2 minute walk to the Towans approaching a beautiful beach.  No stones ..just soft, yes golden, sand.  But Cornwall is increasingly  busy now.......ESP during July and August.  Probably rhe quality of life is good compared to many areas

Morning folks 

Really sad about Robin Williams.  however I felt he was often just on the brink of "sanity"  Just as it was with dear old spike Milligan.  So many of these apparently extrovert comedians are indeed very sad within.  I know myself I joke non stop when on edge ........

Looking nice and sunny now.....I can just make out my blue shirt hanging behind helenium Moreheim Beauty.  Could move it to contrast  with canna Durban.....decisions, decisions

Yes Lyn, I always remove leaves before,then because flower buds are already pushing through and you can then see them.

No Berghill.  I'm well aware of that.  My comment was in regard to Lyn's about not  cutting leaves back until Feb 

The greenfly question had been addressed already

I'm envious Smokin.   Relatively peaceful here in Cornwall I guess compared to most of the UK

Dove, that's awful for you about your mother.  Traumatic realisation I guess that things wont  apparently be the same.  Yett it doesnt really change your relationship, what you had with her or your closeness to each other.  I dreaded my dad going down that road but he never really did.  My mother ?  Well. It's hard to say at the moment but it's not looking too good.  Thoughts with you right now though ...I know it's difficult
