Had a visit to Southlands this past weekend, my most favourite nursery of all time. It’s surely the mecca for all plantophile, gardenaholics such as myself in the general vicinity of Vancouver. The owner, a charming gentleman by the name of Thomas Hobbs, never disappoints with his suberb assortment of seasonal plants, divine displays, drool worthy clay pots of all colours, and of course the latest, greatest and most stunningly unique plants. Everywhere you look there is some beautiful object, living or otherwise begging you to find it a place in your home or garden.
The moment I pulled into the parking lot, my eyes immediately went to a large cordoned off cart full of plants. From my car I could see it had treasures of my MOST favourite sort. A new shipment of hellebores! And they were choice… Doubles in every colour! Yellow Ones! Black ones and painted ones! Oh…just…OH!!! Turns out they were just in from a specialized Hellebore breeder out of Oregon. Special indeed!
Now I’m heading out of the parking lot and into the actual nursery….
Whether you have a window sill, balcony or a huge 10 acre garden, Mr. Hobbs has a new and stunning beautiful plant for you! Stay tuned for part 2…..
