  1. Absolutely beautiful! I don't know what has happened to mine, all leaf no bloom! Still, I'm revelling in yours this morning.

    1. That's strange, Deborah - are they new leaves?

  2. That's quite an impressive range of colour/pattern. (Ours just comes in white)

    1. I took photos of the less accessible ones today so more colours to add, Mal.

  3. A lovely range of different hellebores Sue. Deborah above says hers haven't flowered, I cut the old leaves off mine in November and give them a feed of rose fertiliser, do you do the same?

    1. To be honest Brian they are left more or less to get on with it. No feeding, I just cut back the leaves - this year it was the second week in January. The magnolia sheds its leaves on top of them providing a mulch and probably adds a bit of nutrient into the soil. I clear some leaves when the buds start forming. They seem happy as they self seed freely which adds to the collection.
