Hello Hellebore Lovers!

The Hellebore Hurrah! Opening Weekend is coming up the weekend of February 26th-28th, 2016. We will have 110 different kinds of hellebores this year, the largest selection in our history! And I must say we have many beautiful plants in gorgeous flower too for you to ogle and gasp over. Gosh I love hellebores.

This email is the official launch of our Hellebore Hurrah! Catalogue 2016 with photos and descriptions of most of the hellebores we'll be offering plus an article about hellebores, how to care for them, and who is breeding these amazing plants. You can download it from the link below.

We have three ongoing Hellebore Pre-Sales leading up to the Hurrah! that you might want to take advantage of in order to secure some of the hottest and newest cultivars including the spectacular 'Mme Lemonnier' pictured below in our Next Generation Pre-Sale. (If you love Helleborus 'Rosemary' this one is a sister plant with glowing pink flowers - oh la la!) The Pre-Sales also offer *official* savings on the Winter Jewels collections but also, because of the plummeting value of the Canadian dollar and because a number of our plants are coming in from the US, we will have to raise some prices on pre-sale hellebores at the Hurrah! Until the Hurrah! starts though we will continue to honour the current price as part of the Pre-Sales. If you really want some of these plants, we suggest buying them in advance to get the lower price.

'Mme Lemonnier' is the result of a rare cross between the Lenten rose and the Christmas rose. It is a spectacular plant for the garden offering colours never before seen in hellebores.

Our Hellebore Containers To Die For Workshop is filling up quite fast so please register soon if you'd like to attend. Details are below.

Yours in Hellebores, Gary and the Phoenicians
