Plant of the Month
Hellebores, also known as Lenten or Christmas roses, are aptly named for the time of year that they flower and are perfect for adding some early colour to your garden. These evergreen perennials have toothed leathery leaves and beautiful early blooms which can last up to 8 weeks, making them a welcome addition in December and January; a time when little else is in flower.
Hellebores are available in virtually all colours but mainly come in whites, pinks and creams. They tolerate a wide range of soils from neutral to acidic; grow well in sun or partial shade; are extremely hardy, and also exhibit a natural resistance to deer, frost and the extremities.
We now have a huge selection available; many of which are fully laden with buds and just about to break into flower. Come and see the full range of these delightfully cheerful winter angels and start to add some easy colour to your garden today.
