HELLEBORUS ORIENTALIS REDS
Wide open, nodding, golden-eyed flowers in reds and deepest pinks, and all attractively speckled within, flaunt their beauty in earliest spring. These plants are exceptionally easy to grow, are very long-lived and once established will put on a wonderful trouble-free annual display. After two or three years you will find they also spread by self-seeding!
Sow these seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, WHENEVER THIS MAY BE! They need SEVERAL MONTHS in damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate as the season naturally warms, usually between January and March in the Northern Hemisphere, regardless of when they are sown. Keep the seed tray in a cold place, and check every few weeks. They are COLD germinators! Never, ever, use any artificial heat as this will prevent them from germinating, and ultimately kill them! Keep ungerminated seed pots for at least two years!
