Our Hellebore shop has reopened after a couple of weeks off.
We were having a few issues with Australia Post delays and keeping up with orders generally, but we think we have things sorted now. We will be posting all Victorian orders via Express Post to expedite delivery. Interstate orders have not been as affected by Australia Post delays so we will continue to send via normal parcel post. We are finding about 80% of orders getting to their destinations within one week.
Your understanding of the challenges in running a mail based live plant business during the current difficulties is appreciated. Plants may be in the post a bit longer than ideal but we find that beyond a few superficial marks, Hellebores are tough plants and will in the longer term grow right through such issues.
Please note also that stocks of quite a few of the varieties we have currently listed in the shop are limited and may not last long. We expect that we will only be taking orders until the end of September.
We have enjoyed a wonderful flowering season here in the Nursery. We are still hand pollinating our stock plants and tubing up the varieties which we will be selling next year.
The joy and satisfaction of plants and gardening have only been heightened by the unique circumstances that we have all found ourselves in during 2020. We hope that your garden is thriving and would again like to thank all for their support over the past season and hope for a better one next year.
The next three Sundays will be our final Open Days at Post Office Farm for this year. Last chance for the year to see the Nursery and we still have some flowering Hellebores available. For more information on our Open Sundays see here.
