We hope you have enjoyed a good flowering season with Hellebores in your garden. Thanks again to all those who have ordered from us this year and visited the Nursery over Winter. In the Nursery now we are nearly finished tubing up the newly germinated seedlings which will be next year’s crop. We have finished hand pollinating thousands of flowers in the stock house and have spent several days placing our custom bags over all of the pollinated flowers to collect the seed.
In the garden now is the time to remove spent flowering stems, apply some mulch around the Hellebores and keep an eye out for aphids. Assuming the usual dry conditions apply over Summer make sure any new Hellebores you have planted this year get water as required.
Crookwell Garden Festival
Our very last event this season will be to attend the Crookwell Garden Festival in November. We hope to see Hellebore lovers from Crookwell and surrounding areas. We have put aside a few nice Hellebores for this market. The wonderful ‘Garden Lovers Market’ is held on Saturday 9th November as part of the Crookwell Garden festival. The Garden Lovers Market is held at the Crookwell Showgrounds. More information here.
Online Hellebore Shop closing
Last call for any Hellebore orders for this year. We are getting very low in stocks of Hellebores so the website Shop will be closing at 6pm this Friday October 18th.
