Hellebores are one of the early bloomers of the year and their flowers can bring a lovely sigh of relief that spring must be on the way. Keep them in tip top shape by cutting off old leaves that produce flowers from ground level to show off the flowers and help to get rid of hellebore leaf spot.

If your beds are overcrowded you can easily propagate more plants by dividing the ones you already have. Dividing some every two to three years can really help keep them in shape. Try dividing hostas, agapanthus and salvias by lifting, dividing, replenishing the soil and then replanting and watering in well. Always use the best looking roots to replant and discard any dead or diseased material. It’s an easy way to fill your garden for free.

Why not try growing your own cut flowers? It’s extremely satisfying to grow flowers to pop in your own vases or give to friends. Great cut flowers include zinnias, cosmos, echinacea and delphiniums. Most can either be sown in pots and then transplanted outside later or sown directly in the soil when it’s a little warmer. So think about what you would like to see in your house and get growing it.
