Winter gardening weekend Feb 2005

"Red Hellebores are a stunning sight in large drifts"

This year the main focus was hellebores. These jewels of the winter months added something that no other winter flower can. Again this display was never meant to be technically correct, impact was yet again the order of the day.

Details of the 2007 show are to be found here

Here are just a few pictures in case you didn't make it.

The main display

1) Again garden ornaments were added to liven things up a little. Here for the first time were added several oak stumps to try to create a woodland feel.

2) Red hellebores, somehow a bit special, looking really effective here in a large drift.
