My hellebores are in full bloom, and you’ll find them at garden centres now too. Now’s a very good time to buy them if you didn’t do so earlier in the year, because you can see just what you’re getting. The flowers are the shy and retiring type, usually bowing their pretty heads, but they’re gorgeous – some deep burgundy, some white or pink, some green or with freckles. All are lovely, and they have very attractive foliage too. These two beautiful floral designs were crafted by the ever-talented Amy Merrick. The top design shows freckled hellebores with white flowering dogwood (cornus). The second bouquet has divinely dark-coloured hellebores accompanied by ranunculi.
