What do the seedlings look like?
Last summer I planted fresh Helleborus seeds. Now the pot is full of something that looks like blades of grass but there is also one seedling that has two leafs that looks like a helleborus. I have a faint memory that there was one blade of grass last autumn, is it so that hellebourses germinates with blades that looks like grass and then get the adult shape the second year? Or is my pot full of weeds?
