Hellebore flowering season
We had a lovely snowfall at the Nursery last week. Hellebores don’t mind snow and frost at all and look very picturesque in the process.
This time of the year there is lots happening at the Nursery. Hellebore seed is germinating with the promise of next years crop of Hellebores. The results of our breeding efforts of three years ago are becoming evident as our larger 200mm pots of Hellebores come into flower now and over the next 6 to 8 weeks.
The famous Hellebore Stock House is enjoying a late-ish season this year which means a stunning floral display during August and probably well into September this year. We have started hand pollinating the stock plants which will hopefully yield a nice seed crop later in the year.
Nursery Open Days
Post Office Farm Nursery is open to the public on Sundays only from now through to the end of September. Sundays 10am to 4pm. We are at 934 Ashbourne Rd. Ashbourne (Just out of Woodend in the Macedon Ranges about 1 hour from Melbourne). We are coming up to the best time to visit during late July and through August when we have lots of stunning Hellebores in flower. And at 11am and 2 pm each Sunday we have an informative talk on Hellebores and a tour of the Nursery.
Hellebores by mail
For those who cant get to the Nursery this Winter we continue to post Hellebores out to all States (except WA). We have over 40 varieties in our 2016 Online Hellebore Shop. These are 1 year old seedlings of our best hand pollinated plants. Now is a very good time to get Hellebores into the garden.
