The countdown to spring is on and the urge to get growing is irresistible! It’s so cheering to see those early plants already out the blocks, shimmying their heads above ground or popping out buds as they soak up every ray of light in our lengthening days. These are the tough guys of the garden – hellebores, witch hazels, clematis and more... hardy as a boot, their roots down in the warmth underground.But while there’s still an icy crust on soil to contend with, I salve the need to get growing by turning indoors – tucked up in the greenhouse or, when it’s really nippy, sowing seeds at the kitchen table, mug of tea and radio close to hand.

They happily hybridise and cross with all-comers, which (if one ignores the moral laxity) is a good thing for gardeners, as it means that we now have hellebores in every colour from white to deep, thundery, purple. In the ancient world, they were used to cure madness, notably in the case of the king of Argos’s daughters, who were given to running naked through the streets – very different from the home life of our own royal family.
