Final call for Hellebores
We hope you have enjoyed a good season with the Hellebores in your garden. It has been an excellent year for flowering at the Nursery this year and we have enjoyed strong demand for our plants. 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 are about to place bags over all of those 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.
Late Spring Events
This year we are attending a couple of gardening events in mid November. This is late for us but both events are quite exciting and new for us so we didn’t want to miss out.
Yarra Valley Plant Fair and garden expo
An exciting new Plant Fair, this will be held on the weekend of 17th and 18th of November at 125 Quayle Rd, Wandin. For more information see here.
Paul Bangay’s Stonefields open garden.
Another new event for us. This event will raise money for the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation. Its will be held on the weekend of 17th and 18th of November (yes we will be in two places at once) at Paul’s private garden Stonefields, near Daylesford in Central Victoria.
