specializing in hellebores and other places or interest
The list below is by
no means complete, there are many places which sell hellebores these
days, we have only listed nurseries that breed and sell hellebores
as their primary crop. The nurseries on this list are ones that we
know from personal experience, with breeders we feel are doing a
great job. We have seen their plants and respect
their efforts. In keeping with our belief that honesty is the
only policy, we also have heard only
positive comments on their business practices.
