It’s not as hard as you might think to find colour in the winter garden, especially with hellebores at your disposal.

Helleborus x sahinii ‘Winterbells’ is the star of this container display. With nodding blooms and dusky backs to the petals, it’s the perfect accompaniment to the bronze sedge, wood spurge and heathers.
