Sharing the Hellebore love in Leaside
The requests for spring garden cleanups are coming in fast and furious with April's good weather.
Here's another small project for a new client in the Leaside area of Toronto with the typical tasks of raking out the garden beds, pruning some of the shrubs, and the highlight: transplanting three fresh and full containers of "Ivory Prince" hellebore (Helleborus x hybridus 'Walhelivor').

The garden center selling these hellebores know how weak and vulnerable many Toronto gardeners are right now. While these perennials can be considered expensive at about $40 for a one gallon pot, there's no denying hellebores (and Helleborus in general) are beautiful and tough as nails too. Combine them with daffodils and crocuses for a winning spring composition!
