But here is a warning about giving up. Last year I tried to save some seed from our Lenten Rose plant. "Use fresh seed" is the hellebore mantra, so I popped them straight from the seedhead into this tray on 13 June last year. Absolutely nothing happened (except for the occasional spray of water) until about 4 weeks ago when the first sign of life was detected!
Today I have potted the seedlings up and have high hopes that they will flower - next year! I am amazed - Amazed that I had the "good sense" not to give up and recycle the potting compost and grit when I did my spring clean up.
So there's more than one answer to the question.
