The Wonder of Hellebores
Hellebores are beautiful plants with attractive evergreen foliage and flowers which provide welcome colour during winter. These plants look great in your garden border throughout the year. Now available in a variety of distinctive colour groups including white, apricot, pink, red, yellow and smokey blue.
Planting and Feeding Hellebores
Hellebores perform well when planted in dappled shade in damp but well drained soil. They should not be allowed to dry out in the first year after planting. Once they are established they are deep rooting and survive droughts with impunity.
They are hungry plants and respond well to being planted with compost or well-rotted manure. This can also be applied as mulch around established plants in the Spring. If compost or manure is not available, any balanced granular or liquid feed will encourage vigour during the growing season.
