mediterranean : The Helleborus orientalis loves damp and cool soils, therefore it is necessary to water it very often, keeping the soil slightly damp; in any case it is always advisable to avoid water stagnation and excess watering: it is best to water every 0-0 weeks.
Fertilization Helleborus orientalis : During the summer period letís fertilize perennial plants periodically, using a fertilizer for flowering plants, to mix to the irrigating water every 10-15 days; we can also use a slow release granular fertilizer.
