    My flower of the month is 3 cornered leek/garlic, the little bells are so pretty

    Runners up are the winter-flowering jasmine on the front of the house and the little campanulas self-seeded up the stone steps out the back

    Pictures are not in the right order, sorry.

    Hellibore orientalis, I love the ones with the spotty throats, Hamenalis molis, the perfume is wonderful, Viburnam tinus, I rarely get it to flower. Finally double snowdrops, they are the only flower that is native to this bit of ground. Survived all the building and being run over by lorries, dug up at the wrong time of year and they are multiplying!

    I can't take any photo My garden hasn't nothing but boring shrubs more shurbs, grass and more shurbs! We've taken most of them out down the left hand side of the garden. Just left with quite a large area running along side the oak tree.

    I look forward to adding some photos in the next coming months.

    I must add, roitelet that Hellibore Orientalis is so beautiful!

    Love those hellebores Roitelet!

    My garden is open and seems to live in a frost pocket even though I'm in the South west flowers often come out later.

    They are gorgeous but the flowers look down rather than up so that they are not always noticed. Easy plants to grow though - very good for the areas that are shady as they flower when there's not much greenery around.

    Planted some hellebores in the autumn. Fairly decent sized plants, roots filled a 3 inch pot. Is it likely they'll flower this year? How long do they take to get established?
    Are y'oroight booy?
