I’ve spent most of the morning in the garden and it felt so good to be able to get out there again. I’ve cut back the last of the perennials and found lots of bulbs starting to peek through and this Hellebore was hidden under the Cosmos chocamocha, there are several more in bud too #hellebore #hellebore-double-ellen-white #christmas-rose 3/12/19

You have to wait until the seed pods fatten and change from green to brown which is usually around late spring. I take the flower head off then cut out the ripe pods which need to be sown straight away Jane. 2 things to bear in mind ....it is a poisonous plant and the new plant may not be identical to the parent plant. Hope that helps 👍☺
