Bring a Friend to the Hellebore Hurrah!
Celebrating our 14th Anniversary Season!
Hello Hellebore Lovers!
The world needs mores hellebores! I don't have to convince you. You're already converted. What strikes me though is that as I drive around the city in early spring, I don't see that many hellebores in front gardens. Maybe they're hiding in backyards but overall I think most gardeners and homeowners haven't discovered the magic of this group of plants.
So we are asking you to become proponents of the hellebore, missionaries promoting spring beauty and enchantment. We need you to go door to door in your neighbourhood and spread the gospel of the hellebore.
All kidding aside, we'd love it if you decide to introduce one neighbour or friend or family member to hellebores this year. Bring them along to the Hellebore Hurrah! and watch them go googly eyed over all the colour and variety.
In this final installment of the Hellebore Alert before tomorrow's opening day we include the Hellebore Catalogue filled with the 100 different cultivars and species we'll have on hand. You might just go googly eyed looking at it.
We have four hellebore pre-orders running right now on some of the most exciting cultivars. You can still order today. In many cases we have limited supplies of these plants. So ordering in advance helps you lock in your most prized plants. But also, you get the best plants. Before the Hellebore Hurrah! Gary will personally choose the biggest plants and the best flower forms for you.
We also have a workshop on Hellebore Containers to Die For running on Saturday the 25th with Kate. Learn to create amazing mixed containers that include hellebores. Details are below. Please register in advance.
We can't wait to see you at the Hellebore Hurrah!
Yours in Hellebores,
Gary and the Phoenicians
