HELLEBORUS FOETIDUS MISS JEKYLL'S SCENTED
The overpowering fragrance from the pendulous purple-lipped flowers fills our cottage garden for weeks in earliest spring, and this has been likened to mahonia perfume). This form is the rare, sweetly-perfumed form of Helleborus foetidus (so called because only the attractive, thick, waxy, divided FOLIAGE has a musky smell if bruised!).
Sow these seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, NO MATTER WHENEVER THIS MAY BE! They depend on having SEVERAL MONTHS in damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate IN THE COLD, usually between November and March in the Northern Hemisphere, regardless of when they are sown. Keep the seed tray in a cold place, e.g. a shady corner. Never use any artificial heat as this will prevent them from germinating. Keep ungerminated seed pots for at least two years!
