Hellebores are also known as ‘The Christmas Rose’ as they flower around Christmas but they can flower right through until March.
This variety will do best outdoors either in a pot on a doorstep or patio or planted directly in the ground. Choose a spot out of direct sunlight where you can enjoy the winter flowers. You will probably find our winter rain provides plenty of water but if we do have a dry spell give your hellebore a drink – you are always aiming to keep the soil damp.
After flowering your Hellebore can be re-potted in a larger pot with suitable compost and put outside on a patio or balcony or it can be planted out in the garden in the spring. Hellebores like semi shade and a damp but well drained spot and often work well in the shade of larger shrubs or trees.
Over time your hellebore can grow into a sizeable bush producing pretty flowers in the depths of winter. Once established they are very hardy and will continue to flower even when snow is on the ground.
Old foliage and spent flowers should be removed to keep the plant healthy, especially indoors and in a pot. Don’t be surprised if your plant doesn’t look too bushy in the summer months when it is resting – it will soon come back with plenty more growth and flowers in the autumn and winter.
