Hellebores are evergreen perennial plants which are tough and well suited to temperate climate areas of southeastern Australia. They are outdoor plants and are best suited to growing in the ground but can be grown in pots.
Their main point of difference to many other plants is their flowering period, which occurs over Winter. In the wild they are plants of deciduous woodland and so are well suited to conditions where they receive shade in Summer but plenty of light over Winter.
The best time to plant Hellebores is from mid Autumn through to early Spring, which corresponds to our selling period.
There have been a couple of nice media stories on Post Office Farm Nursery (and Hellebores) in past few years. Firstly an ABC Gardening Australia program which was aired in July 2018, click here to see the story also an article from The Age/Sydney Morning Herald (published July 2018), click here to see.
