GREEN UP YOUR GAFF

HELLO HELLEBORE

7th February 2018

Words by Jessica Peace

The hellebore is one of our earliest flowerers, often beating the snow drop. Colours range from the deepest purples – almost black, through to pinks, whites and lime greens getting you through the winter blues. This cheeky little number is a total tease, tip its head back to cop an eyeful!

BOLD BOUQUETS AND ROCKING BEDS

Jurassic style foliage all year round makes it a great mate for ferns and other forest floor fillers. Grow for a winter boost when you step into the cold or snip off and drop in a vase – looks wicked as a single stem.

For more ideas for winter blooms have a nosey at Nik’s book.
