I have been inside doing my end of year clean up and I had to walk the dog. Aminia has been so loyal since I have been inside and under the weather. When we came out of the house, I was greeted by the most perfect bud……
What a way to start the day!!!! When I came back from walking her, I realized that I needed to take a walk through my garden….just to see what was going on. Imagine my excitement when I realized….hmm….December, almost New Year’s and a relatively warm day in winter……..what season is it???? It is Hellebore season of course!!!
Left to her own devices, my Hellebore Heaven has given birth to some wonderfully healthy babies!!!!! My Hellebores are nestled beneath a Cornus Florida from Biltmore Estates (I need to plan another trip down there. Their wine is absolutely divine….their plants are wonderful as well!). I mulch this area in the Spring and use Kelp as a fertilizer a few times over the season and it seems to be the right spot to increase my brood of Hellebore’s.
