HELLEBORE - Scandal

You have already seen photos of three of the varieties of hellebore I have in the garden, well this is the fourth.

I was really fortunate, as last year my mother-in-law's neighbour was having an area outside of his house paved, and he needed homes for his well established clumps of hellebores. Well as not to appear greedy, I came home with out five good sized plants!

I potted them on into one litre pots, to let them die down over the winter period, and then this year, once they had started to spring back into growth again, I planted them out in the borders.

I can't wait for next year to see how they have spread?

Ah, I love a good plant rescue story. Beautiful pics. I'm so enjoying getting out in the gardens again too. I will be finishing off re-mulching the pathways in my veg. garden today.

You certainly seem to have hellebore green fingers. They are lovely, aren't they?
