Finally got around to putting up a January Album - a bit heavy on the Helebores but for me these wonderful plants constantly delight me especially at this time of year when I am impatient for everything else in the garden to get going!

Next session in the garden will deinitely see all the helebores having their leaves trimmed 0 except for Helleborus Argutifolius and Helleborus Foetidus. Neither of these appear to suffer from Blackspot but the rest are definitely improved by removing the leaves!And just to make a point - here are a few more of them!

Super album Hazel, you have lovely winter structure and lots of nice plants going on there, especially those hellebores.  Is that a willow or cornus in photo 20?  Love the colour of the stems!

Lovely album Hazel. I too love the Hellebores and They are a lovely feature in the album. I could look at them all day. Aren't they just stunning. You have a fabulous garden no matter what the season is. That's down to all your hard work!!

Gosh, Hazel, your garden is a credit to you. Super photos.

Hazel, a great selection of hellebores and what a beautiful Witch Hazel. The heathers and the stems of the cornus add  so much to the winter garden.

Just saw your comment that it is a willow not a Cornus, Hazel. A great colour stem.

You do have some lovely structure in the garden. I'd never heard of hellebores until I joined Garden.ie. What a treat they are, I'm getting addicted.
