Hello Fellow Gardeners,

We are now open for the 2018 season with the Hellebore Hurrah! Opening WEEK Feb 23rd-March 4th!

Note that we have changed the Hurrah! from a "weekend" to a "week". Well, it's actually more than a week as it goes from this weekend to the next weekend. What's important is that there's lots of time for you to come and ogle all of the beautiful hellebores and take some home for your garden. You can come this weekend or during the week or next weekend. We'll have tons of hellebores for you to see.

This also allows you to choose the best time to travel to us. There's still some inclement weather in the forecast so please be safe and come when the roads are clear.

If you have pre-ordered hellebores you can pick them up any time from today onwards for the next 4 weeks. We do recommend you come sooner than later as the hellebores are in bloom now and we want you to enjoy them. If you selected for us to ship your hellebores, we will be shipping out only when you're weather is warm enough for them to travel. We'll be in touch.

Saturday's Hellebore Containers To Die For Workshop and our new and free Hellebore Crash Course Gardening 101 seminar are both getting pretty full but there's a little bit of space if you want to squeeze in. Details are below with links to register.

We look forward to seeing you soon! When you come, please consider bringing a friend or neighbour with you. Despite 14 years of Hellebore Hurrahs the city still isn't filled with hellebores! There's lots of space for more. Plus friends don't let friends garden without hellebores!

See you soon!

Yours in Hellebores,
Gary and the Phoenicians
