When I walk around the garden at this time of year, I do so love to be greeted by swathes of Hellebores. Risen from the same spot as last year, but possibly with one or two more flowers standing proudly with them. Like friends conversing. Over the last few years I have discovered how vast the range of Hellebores can be. Garden centres perhaps display the more common varieties. The Plain purple, or pink and whites. But they can come in such an assortment of colours and flower shapes. I don’t believe anyone that says that they dislike Hellebores. What is even better is their ability to grow and thrive in dry shade, where little else will succeed. I like planting them around the base of trees or by a wooden gate. Or under dappled woodland. Try and steer clear of overly boggy ground.
