Now don’t shout but...I actually really like this time of year. I like the quietness of it, the easy pace, if you now what I mean, plus the anticipation of everything that is about to come 🙊 @SylviaDavies @pelly
Still waiting for mine to start, no buds or flowers this year at all, just loads of big foliage 😕 Told her last year if she didn't flower she was a gonner..she produced one and got a reprieve...no reprieve this year!!
Not sure what it is, the unusual winter was a factor I'm sure, (as the Mahonia didn't flower either, which it had the 2 previous years 🤔) Other than cut back old foliage I did nothing to it. The new foliage this year is beyond huge, leaves as big as the Fatsia it's next to!!
Fantastic! Next year I'm going to get every type of hellebore I can get my hands on 😂😂😂 I've really grown to appreciate them this year, how useful they are in the garden and how many varieties are available.
Hi Jyoty, No they aren’t in the same family as rose. They are in the family Ranunculacaee. They must get their common name as the flowers look a bit like a simple rose. Christmas ones in Dec-Feb (in theory!) & Lenten ones around Feb-Apr. 👍😊 @jyotu
