Helleborus (Hellebore) Collection


Helleborus appear in the depths of winter bringing a magical touch to your garden whilst most other plants slumber. Clusters of fully double blooms up to three inches across will glisten in the winter sunshine, dancing in the breeze above a collar of evergreen glossy foliage. In medieval times Helleborus were said to be good for breaking bad spells and curses so were often planted next to the front door, today they are known for their unsurpassed winter beauty and a plant lover’s dream to add cheer throughout the winter. This rare collection of fully double varieties defy nature by surviving the coldest winters and also grow extremely well in difficult areas of the garden including planting alongside trees and shrubs. Deer and rabbit resistant. Easy to grow and maintain in dappled shade with moist but well-drained soil. Growing to a height of 35cm (14") making them perfect for flowerbeds or containers. Fully hardy perennial. Supplied as young plants.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
