Hellebore seed collecting time!
The seeds can be planted in pots if you have the patience to water them and wait many months for them to germinate. I like to give them a special spot on the ground a just toss them on the ground and let nature do the rest.
When you collect seeds in your garden that the bees pollinated one never knows how the seeds will cross with the other hellebores in the garden. One must wait two to three years to find out what they will look like.
Boehmeria cylindrica on the right of it. False Nettle is the host plant for the Red Admiral butterfly, we have lots of the nettle and butterfly here. No it is not stinging either.
