Hellebores - when to feed

Posted: 25/04/2013 at 20:41

Hiya Bev

Why pots into a trough though?  This summer would be just about growth for those plugs.  Think I would put in 1litre pots and leave in partial shade.  They prob won't flower until 2015.  Mpc ok but I would use J Innes next spring.   Manure when they are  bigger I think

Those greens at GC are bit iffish.  Hopefully yours will be the colour as shown  on harvington site

Far too early to put out cuttings.

Danny you are making me excited now.

Sounds like you have got it sorted. Maybe a picture now and when planted?

Hiya dannyboy

Well. You're keen.

You intend potting them up for a while?  

Exciting though.  Got a plan?Design? Or just a explosion of colour?

Dag nam it.  Tina beat me to it.  

Got lawns.....sounds grand, doesn't it?  Medium front lawn and smallish back........cut today, pulled few weeds, considered where some of my tender perennials can go,  and tidied up emerging plants .  Got lumbered into helping a friend in her garden for a while, despite my haste to get on.

Hope everyone's had good day
