When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Helleborus x hybridus 'Harvington Double Chocolate'

Have you ever tried cross pollinating them Jacqueline, I want to try it when they are dry enough 🤔

I haven’t no. Though they seem quite good at doing it themselves. I often have rogue ones turning up in the garden, though they are usually dark purple... @pelly

My first post of 2020...showing so much promise of wonderful things to come 😊 Wishing everyone a really Happy New Year. May all your seeds grow and your buds flower and may the clouds bring rain when you need it (but not too much) but otherwise may the sun shine ☀️😎

Why are your harvington double chocolates looking up and bright and my HD whites are looking straight at the ground. I wonder if location has something to do with it.

😂😂 They are behind a wall to the south, so get very little direct light but I know it does depend on variety. @columbiariver
