About Northwest Garden Nursery
Specializing in Hellebores
In the early 1990s we began dabbling in hellebore breeding, having obtained some good hellebore seed from Will McLewin in the UK and Gisela Schmiemann in Germany. We then upgraded our hellebore breeding operation with a trip to England and Holland, bringing back first-rate breeding stock from Ashwood Nursery, Blackthorn Nursery, and de Hessenhof, many of which are the venerable ancestors of our own breeding efforts.
Finally, after many enjoyable and busy years of selling retail here at the nursery and at many area plant sales, we decided that we needed to concentrate our efforts toward our main love of creating and providing hybrid hellebores of superior quality to wholesale nurseries, as well as to our customers here at Northwest Garden Nursery.
Hellebore Open Garden Days
For many years now, we have had a Hellebore Open Garden Days retail event here at the nursery in February and early March at which people can come to see hellebores growing in the garden and purchase them in bloom. Please go to our Visiting the Garden page and sign up for our Open Days reminder.
