The secret of successful hellebore germination is to sow the seeds as early as possible after harvest, between June and August. They should then start to germinate from November/December, otherwise it can take up to 2 years! Sowing instructions are included with all orders. You can also consult them on-line. Sowing your hellebore seed.
All our seeds are hand-pollinated from our carefully selected excellent breeding stock of Helleborus x hybridus. Most of our colour series are now coming true and although we cannot guarantee 100% the colours or forms we can promise exciting results.
Please bear in mind that a little patience is needed as often hellebores will take one to two years to flower from germination but we think it is well worth the wait!
