Winter Talking Plants Morning - Hellebores

hellebores
Join Peter Leigh from Post Office Farm Hellebores for a morning of Hellebores - their flowers, how to grow them plus some for sale

Hellebores are the heroes of the Winter Garden.  Peter Leigh’s illustrated talk will introduce us to the wonders of Hellebores. Peter began growing Hellebores as a keen amateur collector in the early 1990s. He imported Hellebore seeds from overseas and nurtured them in his small backyard. Then after studies at NMIT and Burnley he moved to Ashbourne near Woodend in 2002 and established Post Office Farm Nursery. He will give us an understanding of Hellebores including a comprehensive outline of Hellebore species and hybrids. We will see the latest breeding successes from his nursery including new colours and forms. We will learn how to use Hellebores in the garden and how to grow them successfully. 

Plants will be available for sale.

Before the presentation we will serve a 'Lenten" inspired morning tea. The Growing Friends Nursery will be open from 8am to 12 noon, so you can visit the nusery to make purchases before coming to this event.
