We have added many new plants for 2013 including large numbers of Hellebores, Double Japanese Hepaticas , Cypripediums (Hardy Orchids), Ferns and much more. We, or I should say,I, continue to hoard plants like a fanatic. New for 2013, we are creating email lists to keep our customers informed of what's new at the nursery. We are offering a PDF version of the catalogue via email as well as occasional emails about new offerings. If you would like to receive these emails please go to Email list for more information. Also, a New plants page has been added and new plants will be listed there first, as well as on our facebook page, so you can keep track of what is new on the website. We will use facebook as a venue to post photos of new plants, and to tell our customers about new events and what's going on at the nursery. We would like to thank our customers for a great 2012 and we are looking forward to 2013. We will have special hellebore draws available for groups, gardens clubs and bus tours from February 16th to March 30th. Please let us know if you have a group coming to the nursery. Please enjoy our 2013 plant list.
Our first major event of 2013, Helleborganza, will begin on February 16th and continue until the 24th. We will have special draws available for groups, gardens clubs and bus tours from February 16th to March 30th. We will have a good selection of Hellebores all year and we can hand pick yours if you order soon. We will start shipping Hellebores from the week of Jan 9th 2013. Many new varieties will be added over the next six weeks. To order print an order form. Featured at this event will be an outstanding collection of Hellebores as well as other fabulous late winter blooming plants including Adonis, Corydalis, Cyclamen, Dentaria, Double and single Hepatica and more. Hard work and dedication to hand pollination has produced amazingly beautiful strains of Hellebores in which every plant is fabulous and unique. Similarly, breakthroughs in Hellebore tissue culture have created stunning strains in which every plant is identical. Many of these strains and cultivars are offered and listed below, however, others will be posted on the collectors list on our website just prior to the event. We are offering selections from major Hellebore breeders such as Marietta and Ernie O�Byrne, Joseph Heuger, Judith and Dick Taylor, Heronswood Nursery, Yokohama Nursery, Gisela Schmiemann and Charles Price from countries around the world, including Britain, Belgium, Germany, USA, Canada and Japan. We are particularly excited about the plants from Marietta and Ernie which will be hand picked in bloom just prior to the Helleborganza. To preview photos of the unbelievable double and single flowered Winter Jewels Strain, go to www.northwestgardennursery.com or our Hellebore page or Hellebore Gallery . We will also have species Hellebores and a good selection of larger double and single plants available at the nursery. If you cannot come and want to pick up the plants within a short period of time or have them shipped, fill out an order form with your credit card information and include a pick up date or shipping date and we will choose for you. There will be special offers to those who attend including smaller and much larger plants and plants offered in small numbers. We look forward to seeing you at Helleborganza! . More info soon.
Our second event will be ‘Growing Native’(Native Plants), May 1st-7th and we will offer 20% off native plants during this week. This event is designed to feature and promote the use of native plants. We grow a vast array of pacific northwest and North American native plants. This year we’ll be hosting the event in our growing area and hopefully we’ve timed it to catch the peak of the blooming season for many of our favourite wildflowers. Our aim is to feature many early spring bloomers in addition to hundreds of other native bulbs, perennials and shrubs. We have long promoted the use of native plants and grow the largest selection in the Pacific Northwest so we are excited to showcase over 500 species and varieties. There will be many special deals offered.
Our third event held in conjunction with Growing Native is Orchidmania. The number of hardy ground orchids has exploded and we would like gardeners to become more familiar with these beauties. The hybrids are very easy to grow and make a valuable and unique addition to the garden. We also have many species for the purist, some of which are easy to grow and some are not. All ground orchids will be 10% off during this week.
There are new plant introductions scattered throughout the catalogue in almost every group of plants we grow. In fact we had so many new plants, it was very hard to fit them in the allotted space. Please keep in mind we have thousands more plants available at the nursery, so if possible, come and visit us.
We would like to thank our customers , staff and suppliers for another great year.
