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! :)

I realize that this is quite an old thread, but I have just discovered it. I also have kabillions of hellebore volunteers that I would be happy to share, some several years old. They are the ordinary single-flowered orientalis, I have many colors so no claim at all on what the babies will be. I am in North Georgia, Z7.

*All* of them are left, I haven't dug any yet. How many would you like? I have, literally, thousands; several hundred will be of two year size. e me at cecile138@att.net with Hellebore in the subject line so I don't spaminate you.

Thanks so much, Cecile. The seedlings are securely planted in pots indoors until they can be put outdoors.

Wonderful! I hope they thrive and bloom for you! If not, and you want to try it again, contact me. I have no idea whether certain strains of hellebores are more acclimated to warmer or colder climes, so that might be a consideration, but I am happy to give it another try if need be.

UH OH! I just discovered, in digging plants to ship, that I have an aphid infestation. I'm going to try to kill them on the ones I just dug with insecticidal soap, but until I know whether that works, I guess my offer is off the table. (Unless you want a little livestock with your plants.) So so sorry.
