My new flower obsession: hellebores

My new flower obsession is the beautiful hellebores. This has come about with my need to provide food for bees in winter. I know I am a little bee crazy but I can’t help it. There is something so joyful about this beautiful winter hardy flower. now that winter has a few weeks left. I am definitely not wishing it away but can’t wait for next winter!

The colours are dreamy, I have my beady eyes on so many types I popped them on my image. You can buy them as plants now but if you grow them from seed then you need to plant them in summer. After doing a wee bit of research I learned that they can take longer than 6months to germinate which is a long time to monitor a seed tray.

Hellebores like fertile well drained soil so prepare the earth before you plant them. These are a great plant for shady gardens as they like to be at the front of a border ( maybe infront of my hydrangea). You need to plan where you want them because they don’t like to be moved.

I plan on growing them from a plant, letting it grow and then divid them into smaller plants. I will have to keep them in there pots until I find the perfect place for them. It’s a tricky balance. I may get seeds when I get a greenhouse.

You know I love to plan I can’t help it.

What’s your latest flower obsession?

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
