Ashwood Helleborus Plug Plants


By naoto


I just received 6 plug plants from Ashwood Nurseries.

Normally mature Ashwood Garden Hybrids costs from 14.00 to 25.00 quid per pot (ouch!) and I simply can’t afford it (lol), so I decided to get it much cheaper.

The flowers should be bloomed in the second spring so I’ll have to wait another two years or so.

Cheap! 25.00 quid (double flowers) for 6 plug plants including P&P
Enjoying to see them growing

Can’t choose which colour of flowers you want
Slow growing – will have to wait for another two years to see the first flowers

The 6 plug-helleborus were packed well and no damages during the transport.

They’re still baby but I’m so excited!

I used 2:1:1 of John Innes No.2, multi-purpose compost, perlite, then planted them in 9cm plastic pots immediately.

I’ll keep posting when I can see something changing.
