In the early days of February, if the garden is not iced over you can start to see the flowering of hellebores which will then continue until March. This flower once planted in the right place does not require great care. It needs a small amount of manure in the winter and plenty of water during the flowering period. The most suitable places are best in partial shade if at the foot of a conifer. In fact, if you have any large conifer in the garden under the shade of which is difficult to even make the grass grow, that’s the place for hellebores. This flower fascinates me because it explodes with beauty when it is still cold. Is commonly called Christmas rose. The most common varieties are now selling in all nurseries.
