Re: Hellebores

Hi Joanne,

As far as the Uk is concerned, only about one specialist firm with a wide
range of plants does exports of plants as far as I can tell from a quick
study of the Plant Finder.  It is Phedar  Nursery, Bunkers Hill,  Romily,
Stockport, Cheshire, SK6 3DS. This firm does mainly species.

Several firms do seed, as do Phedar

These include:      Ashwood Nurseries, Greensforge, Kingswinford, West
Midlands, DY6 0AE
                            (They have just exhibited at the RHS hall in
London, and were awarded a Gold Medal,
                              See  "The Garden" March  1999 issue, page 142)

                           CTDA, 174 Cambridge Street, London SW1V  4QE

But be warned that the seed is of short viability.

From my own experience, there is no substitute for actually seeing the plant
you are buying in flower.

The double forms are extremely difficult to obtain over here, and named
varieties command a hefty
premium as I understand they are difficult to t.c.
Ian Chrystal.
