PLANTING OUT SNOW ROSES IN THE GARDEN

Snow Roses are best planted out in the garden between September and November or in spring, when the ground is not frozen. The robust plants also thrive in sunny locations in the garden. However, avoid planting them in the summer, because there is little plant growth and the soil is often too dry.

Dig a hole that is at least double the size of the root ball, and loosen the soil at the bottom of the hole to a good depth. Snow Roses are very resilient and easy to please in terms of soil requirements. Helleborus Gold Collection® Snow Roses are exceptionally free-flowering and should be planted in a prominent place in the garden. This ensures that you will enjoy their beautiful flowers all winter long.

Snow Roses are ideal for planting in large containers as well as decorating your balcony and terrace in winter.

PLANTING OUT SNOW ROSES IN THE GARDEN

 

THE STRONG-GROWING KIND OF HELLEBORUS

If you plant Snow Roses in a group, make sure there is enough spacing. In their second year, Snow Roses Ice N' Roses® grow strongly, which means they require a spacing of at least 80 cm between plants. Less vigorous varieties, such as HGC® Camelot®, are fine at only 60 cm of spacing.

Step 1

Have the following tools handy: a bucket of water, a watering can full of water, a spade.

Dig a hole that is at least double the size of the root ball, and loosen the soil at the bottom of the hole to a good depth.

Step 2

Immerse the potted root ball in a bucket filled with water before planting until the air bubbles stop rising to the surface. This means that the root ball is saturated with water and ready for planting.

Step 3

Remove the Snow Rose from its pot and place it so that the top of the root ball is lightly covered with soil. Use your hands to form a small circular ridge around the edge for improved water retention.

Step 4

Water the Snow Rose in after planting.

Care

Christmas Roses, Snow Roses and Lenten Roses all happily grow and thrive well without requiring a great deal of maintenance if planted in the right spot. Even in planters, the charming winter flowerers don't require a great deal of work. To avoid the occurrence of frost drought, water the Helleborus plants sufficiently during periods of mild weather.

In the summer, you want to move the planter to a shady place and water it occasionally to prevent the plant from drying out.

Flowers

Removing dead flowers from hellebores during the flowering season is normally not necessary; the slightly pink or green tones the flowers take on as they fade actually extend the flowering season in winter. Remove the seed pods before they open, as offspring plants normally don't flower well and might suppress the original plants.

Leaves

With Lenten Roses, it is recommendable to remove all leaves before the plants start to flower in December and January (when budding stems are approximately 10 cm in height). The old and brown leaves of Christmas Roses and Snow Roses can best be removed in the spring and summer.

Feeding

Helleborus plants do not require any fertiliser in their first spring. Feed older plants from February onwards and apply a second dressing of fertiliser in midsummer, when the plants grow new roots and initiate flower buds for the next season. Organic fertilizers such as horn shavings and compost have proven to be the fertilizers of choice. If the plants suffer lime deficiency, soils can be improved by working in Dolomite lime or crushed eggshells.

The leaves that have fallen off nearby deciduous trees provide a layer of mulch in winter; simply leave them lying on the ground. They form a layer that activates soil life. Helleborus is very sensitive to root injuries. For this reason, the ground around it should not be dug.
