An Abundance of Hellebores

nanapam02April 8, 2012

This year I realized I have way too many babies. I cut off the flowers on many of them as a means of plant control. I was thinking about cutting out some of the smaller plants, hoping to kill them. Don't want to dig as there is not enough room. Will cutting the small ones, kill them??

I usually grab handfuls of the babies and pull them up. If they are big enough to cut, you may have to go back a second time and look for another flush of leaves, but I doubt it at this time of year.

Hi - If you still have too many hellebores, let me know. I'm up in Richmond, would love to get some of them as I have some areas I'm trying to "naturalize"... Hellebores would be perfect for a couple of them!

If you still have extra's I would love some starts also. I have tried growing the seed but alas nothing happens. I would be happy to send postage.

Please add me to your list - I'd love some as my rabbits keep eating all the buds and I never have any babies. Perhaps if I add more, they won't be able to eat them all! Happy to pay shipping, thank you! :)
