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, 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!
