@skiring I don't think we have those. Pretty though - purple and green. Green flowers aren't too usual.
@gemlog Hellebores come in more colours than you could possible imagine. Here are some at Veseys, the online plant store I like:
They aren't exactly giving them away are they? Eye-watering prices.
No wonder I'm not familiar with them!
@gemlog The cost of beauty, I suppose!
The hellebore I'm buying over there today costs 22.95. That plant will produce a ton of flowers for me, year after year, so I'm ok with that price.
@skiring I saw a few at like $75. Wow.
@gemlog I think you were looking at collections - four plants of different types, sold as one unit.
@skiring Ah, yes. Correcto.
@gemlog But you have a garden? What do you grow?
@skiring Nada. I've been here nearly four years and it is only now that I am planning anything. Vegetables. Angela grows flowers and some ornamental bushes.
@skiring I always grow veg - except nasturtiums, but those are kind of like veg in a way anyhow.
I borrowed a real PH meter from a friend after that: PH 6. Perfect and better than I'd hoped given all the needles from the adjacent trees.
A couple of little 4x8 plots to begin and start a proper compost for next year.
