poorly heebore

I planted a newly acquired hellebore in my garden last Autumn. It has flowered beautifully throughout early Springtime onwards but at the moment................ it's leaves & fading flower heads are lying on the ground , very limp & obviously not too happy! I don't want to lose it if possible, any ideas please???


  • It may be dry we are experiencing some very dry weather at the moment,

    a picture of the plant might be helpful if possible.

    I've had the same with a few of mine - in my case, a good watering and they were perky again in a few hours

    Just given my plant a gallon of water. It may have dried out. Fingers crossed the big drink will work. Thank you for your suggestions

    Yes - probably a bit thirsty. They prefer damper soil conditions. Keep an eye on it and water again if the soil feels very dry and you don't get any decent falls of rain soon image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
