The World of Hellebores

In February 2013, the Hardy Plant Society ran a study day – ‘Hurrah for Hellebores’.


There were many complements about the day and about the depth of information that was covered.


Particular mention was made of the handout and we are extremely grateful to Diana Guy for permission to reproduce it on this website.
