Not a comment on your wonderful hellebore articles (thanks so much for the links). But you did ask for improbable "plant" photos - check out this magnolia from the Telegraph site!

Graham Rice

Oh boy, that's certainly another! What makes them think that this represents a real plant in a real pot?!

Hi Graham,

Could you tell me where friends coming from Japan soon at the end of february, could see Hellenbores in GB particularly dress ? Nurseries, gardens open to the public, exhibitions ...
Thanks for an advice.

I wanted to write Hellebores of course.

About your article in the last "The Garden" I have a photo taken at Wisley of H. Walberton's Rosemary. Would you like to get it ? I can send it to you. Try this link to my blog (private for familiy and friends)

No answer from Graham. Sorry about having asked an advice from you. I beg your pardon...
In fact my friend has scheduled going to Ashwood and Phedar. It could have been interesting to tell them others such interesting places for Hellebores if they exist ...???

Graham Rice

Sorry JP, I got no notification about your Jan 12 Comment from Typepad - one of the very few occasions it's slipped up. And I can't get into your page anyway as it is, as you say, private. I'd like to see your photo, though.

I'd also suggest visiting Harvey's Garden Plants ( and Farmyard Nurseries (

Thanks Graham ! I shall give those links to my friend.
I shall send you soon an invitation for reading my blog where you will see Helleborus "Walberton's Rosemary" at Wisley where I was with my friend Richard Bird.
Do you know Thierry Delabroye ? Very kind nurseryman in France. I Hope going and visiting him in February for the "Journées des Hellébores" !
All the best.

Graham Rice

Thanks, JP. I've written up Thierry's heucheras in various places, and exchanged emails, but don't know him personally.
