2018-12-25 09.21.44National Hellebore Collection Holder Mike Byford will be bringing plants for sale from Hazles Cross Farm Nursery, Kingsley to accompany this seasonal talk on February 14th. Of his passion for Hellebores Mike says –

“I have had a passion for hellebores for over 30 years since discovering them in the gloomy depths of winter illuminating an otherwise drab winter garden in a large stately home. From there I investigated the work of Elizabeth Strangman, Helen Ballard and Will McLewin in studying the wild species and developing further the range of garden hybrids first developed by the early Victorians in Germany and the UK.”
