Hi Paddy,
Yes the white Hell Or is one I brought from Belgium,from Koen van Poeck a wel know breeder,as you noted it is the best of the whites I have seen,also a strong growing plant,with large flowers,standing slightly upright.
Betty Ranicar,Came from Seed from "Jellito" only a two year old plant,it looks the plants come true from seed as promised.
Post here a "Red Upstart" Also from Koen,but not in flower yet.
Thanks Maggi for your valuable info,your a miller.
Geebo.

The Red Upstart is a very good colour, Geebo. I'd be feeling pleased with myself to have such a plant for my collection.

Hi Maggi,
Sure there wil be a chance to do something about that,as soon the plant is out of flower, will try to get a split. 8)

Geebo, that is very kind of you, but I did not mean to suggest that. The plant is young, let it grow and get fat, like me,do not disturb it! In a year or two it will make good seed, then remember me! I am happy to wait for a little seed to see if i can have that colour.

sorry Geebo but I think there is something wrong with your H.Betty Ranicar, normally you must have a good open flower maby you must take a picture a week later.
here there are a lot of plants ready to show there flowers we do not have any frost till now.
I sow you one normaly flowers in februari:

Geebo,

The two frilly whites are outstanding, exceptionally clean. Very attractive plants.

Are you growing these under cover? I ask because the weather here has been so miserable, gale-force winds and heavy rain and any hellebore growing outside here looks miserable.

Geebo,

To flower, such excellent flowers, from seed sown in 2004 is very good and, no doubt, very satisfying. Perhaps, growing them in a tunnel gives them a longer growing season that plants growing outdoors and this gets them to flowering size quicker.

Whichever it is, well done on very well grown plants and such good flowers.

Here is a lovely hellebore that you don't often see and nor is it easy to acquire.If you see it for sale,BUY IT.I germinated seed 2yrs. ago but lost all of them after pricking out.HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE?
i forgot to mention that it is HELLEBORE THIBETANUS

I have not grown thibetanus from seed yet, but a few years ago I received small
seedlings from a friend.  I am not sure what happened to them. They are deciduous
and that makes it hard to keep track. All the other hellebore seedlings I grow are
evergreen, so I assume a leafless pot is empty, and dump it out.
I should have tied a ribbon around the pots.

I bought a mature plant last year from Thimble Farms  http://thimblefarms.com/
and planted it in a bright red pot. It is blooming now, with three flowers open already.

Hi,
I like the viola pedata, here the snow is melting, the Helleborus doing well this year, I grow a lot of H.thibetanus from seed and you have to be carefull, the first yearthe seedlings die in april-may, and you let the pots outsite just not drying out, I let my seedlings in the pots for 3 years and then I pot them up in 10cm square pots and if you have luck you find the first flowers 7years afther sowing, with H.torquatus 'Pluto' it is the same but for me one of most beautiful Hellebores,

H.'Slaty Blue is nice even before opening the flowers
