Sunday 23rd looks like being is the only calmish day in the coming week. On the other hand, there is another centimetre a day of rain to come between now and then, paths are already under standing water, and likely there is flooding on local roads as well.
So, alternatives to a live open afternoon on February 23rd:
- Virtual visit – a gallery post or two for Sunday.
- Wait for the heritage daffodils in March.
- For anyone with wellingtons and determination to make the trip over during the week 23rd – 28th, email a day ahead to firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s always said that with hybrid hellebores the one way of being sure of finding the flower form and colour that suits you is to purchase plants in bloom.
With that in mind, Frogswell will be open for hellebore viewing in the second week of February. Afternoons only, and by prior appointment. See the Events 2019 section for details.
Hellebore plants still available include some picotees and semi-doubles, as well as the more usual singles in a range of colours. Mainly from divisions, though there will also be a few seedlings available.
It’s also an opportunity to preview the forms that will be available from division next season, and make choices.
Also available: small quantities of double and tall single snowdrops, early daffodils and other woodland plants.
This is by no means a full-dress Charity Open Day – that has to wait on the April trout lilies, corydalis and heritage narcissi.
