Hi,
I bought some young Helleborus Double Ellen Picotee last year with the hope that they would flower this winter/spring. The plants are quite large and very vigorous and still growing really well but no sign of any flowers. They just seem to be getting bigger but just foliage.
Shall I just leave them and see what happens next year?
Thanks very much - Julia

Yes leave them alone and see what happens, they take some time establishing themselves, they look nice and healthy.

Hi again,
Just thought I'd say that they're still growing! They look like something out of the rain forest, they are enormous. Will they ever die back or just keep going and going? After all this growing I do hope I finally get some flowers next year...what do you think?
Thank you
Julia

You should see some flowers come Feb. or March depending on your locality.

Thought for your garden

Reply from Bernard Clemmitt

Hi Julia,
I am new to Shoot membership and do not yet know any other way to contact you. Have you considered the use of some conifers in your garden ? They give colour, shape and form all year round. Maybe they are not your "cup-of-tea" Just a thought and I would be willing to help/advise.
Kind regards,
Bernard Clemmitt
