My very first #hellebore blossom ever..... HAS BEEN MUNCHED BY A DEER!!!! 😢😭😡😠 👎👎👎🦌🎯☠💀 Good thing there are a bunch more #buds coming, but SHAME ON YOU DEER you have the entire front yard!! 25 Jan 2020
It's done a lot in the country for sure due to rabbits deer etc. Usually the men just go out late at night and pee around the boarders lol.. but I've been known and few other ladies I know to collect urine and pour it around the boarders. It's that predator smell not your zone space etc thing. You can buy deer and rabbits deterrents tho if you dont wanna actually do the above lol . Theres some that I know lowes carries that's plant and animal safe.
Snip snip snip, removing last year's big leaves off my #hellebores to prevent hellebore leaf spot per @pelly 's #advice #advice-hellebore #hellebore-pennyspink 12 Jan 2020 #helleboreadvice #hellebore-tip
I see what you mean now @auricula @pelly about cutting off the big leaves. There are actually two hellebores in this garden bed (but only one plant marker, so I'm guessing they're the same...) and this other one had a lot of damaged and browning leaves. The link you shared yesterday was timely and I cut off all the old leaf stalks to prevent the disease from spreading to the other plant (whose leaves I left intact). I hope it'll do ok without its big leaves... it looks a little naked now...
Check out what I found in my front garden bed @pelly @auricula !!! The previous owner planted these so I didn't know they were there until today. 11 Jan 2020 #hellebore #hellebores #hellebore-pennyspink #lentenrose #christmasrose
WOW look what I found in my garden today!!! Hubby and I bought our first house last summer so this is our first winter/spring with this garden and I have no idea what's going to show up this spring. I have been dying to buy hellebores for years and I can't believe the house came with them! 11 Jan 2020 #hellebore #lentenrose #christmasrose #hellebores #hellebore-pennyspink
@sushiwaitress How exciting Ruth, Congratulations 🥳 on the house buy. I would be so excited to see what else pops up in the garden. Maybe make a note of things or take pictures so you remember what you’ve got if you’re going to make any changes. 😊🙏🏼
@sushiwaitress no worries, such an exciting year for you Ruth. It’ll be opening presents all year round. 😆 Yes it would’ve been such a shame to have lost that beauty. Have a fun year can’t wait to see what unfolds. 😊👍🏼
