ILast year I had some lovely Helleniums for first time. When they'd finished I cut them down to a few inches high. Now I'm worried after reading here that you can divide/stake/take cuttings in March and April but mine are only just showing from the earth! Have I done something wrong? Advice please? Thanks!

Hi Gilly, I just took a look at our horticulturalists advice for this plant. We don't advice cutting to the ground at any time, just deadheading. They may well emerge again. I think all you can do is wait and hope the regrow. Kind regards, Nicola

I usually cut mine back by half in winter time and they come back ok.
Give them a right good soak when new growth appears in spring - advice I was given when I first grew them.

Thanks Angie - still no sign despite plenty of water and feed! Maybe next year!
