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.
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.
