Hellebore Niger also known as the Christmas Rose has lovely ivory white blooms above dark green foliage. One of the earliest flowering plants this is perfect for brightening the front of a partially shady mixed border. In previous times hellebores were planted close to cottage doors to prevent evil spirits from crossing the threshold.
Plant these 30-45cm (12-18) apart. After firming the root ball should be about 2.5cm (1) below the surface of the soil. Each spring mulch around the plants with a thick mulch of well-rotted compost or leaf mould. Cut off all the leaves at ground level during Autumn so that the spring blooms can take centre stage and to also help the plant avoid Black Spot problems. Hellebores can be slow to establish and may take a year or two before the first flowers are produced plants also do not like to be moved.
