I'm what you might call an enthusiastic learner in the garden - still at the stage where a fair few things I plant die quite soon after planting!
I admired some Hellebores when out walking with a friend and she gave me a few seedling Hellebores which I promptly planted out in the the garden. I'm pretty sure I planted them in the wrong place as, although not dead, haven't exactly flourished in the full sunshine I planted them in (I've since learned they don't like that so much). While out with hubby at the weekend, on impulse, I bought another Hellebore and it's now nestled under a tree - my question being - is it too late in the year to plant new things out?
In France goes the saying "A la Sainte-Catherine, tout bois prend racine." On St. Catherine’s Day (25th November) all wood takes root. It implies that the climatic conditions are right for planting trees and shrubs on that day. But Hellebores aren't shrubs, so I'm not sure, specially as (here at least) it's very cold these day. Could be a good idea to protect them from exposure to frost damage (straw,pine needles, frames?)
