Leaside Spring Garden Cleanup

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!
