old at gardening, new at Helebores.....
A good friend of mine has given me at least 30 seedling helebores that he grew from seed he got somewhere in Michigan - anyway the parents are supposed to be some of the newest fancy things going. Well, I have the babies lined out in great soil, where they will get a few hours of morning sun.
1) how much room can I expect a full grown helebore to take up in the shade border?
2) how many years until seedlings bloom?
3) any special fertilizing they need?
4) how much sun a day can they take?
I have tons of perennials, but these are my first helebores....
I know I could bother my friend with these questions - but he's off on a trip trying to find and photograph native American gingers for a book he's writing, and won't be back for quite a while.
Thanks so much...
