Heavenly Hellebores

7. With primulaToday I have been writing about hellebores for a magazine article.  The most interesting fact, and one I am sure you will appreciate, is that if you stand on the powdered root it will render you invisible.  Honest, I read it!

This wonderful stand of hellebores is on my friend Pat the Field’s land where she grows a wide range of amazing cut flowers.  Don’t forget to support our local producers 🙂

  1. I love Hellebores and that shot brings a big smile to my face!

    Sorry I haven’t been posting much but I find it hard to think about gardening at this time of year.

    I have 2 pieces of news though, one bad and one good; I am being made redundant this Friday, but this morning I found out that I have been offered a new job, which I accepted!

    Take care

  2. Aha a stand of hellebores….How do you get them to stand ? Mine are lovely but they crawl along the ground so I almost have to get on hands and knees to see the flowers.Though I expect you would say that was good excercise.

  3. Oh dear. I hate it when that happens. I should really be more careful before I hit “post.” I’ll blame it on the cat–he’s always in my way when I’m on the computer. I can’t grow either “boreholes” or “hellebores”–but they are lovely. The hellebores, that is.

  4. Love these and very excited that they can make you invisible. I can think of lots of uses for that. I have less dramatic white ones but they bring me great joy at this time of year.
