Watering & Feeding

Mulching helps retain moisture. Feeding is simple – apply a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early Spring as new growth emerges. Avoid excessive fertilisation, as it can lead to leggy growth.

Just remember, a bit of watering and feeding care will ensure Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Mila Marble continues to reign supreme in your garden.

General Care

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Mila Marble is a low-maintenance gem that shines in your garden. Plant it in well-drained soil with partial to full shade. Water consistently, especially during dry spells, while avoiding waterlogged conditions. Apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser in early Spring to nourish its growth. Deadhead spent flowers for continued blooming and prune any damaged leaves. This hellebore variety is deer-resistant and generally free from serious pests or diseases. Celebrate its Winter blooms by cleaning up old leaves in late Winter to make way for new growth. With minimal effort, Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Mila Marble will reward you with enchanting beauty year after year.
