Hi All,

The Times Sat 1st March had an article on Heleborus Party Dress Group. 

I've not had any luck in tracking them down,  anyone out there know where they may be please ?  Thanks.

    Try RHS plantfinder, that may give you a lead, but I personally haven't heard of them, but I will be having a look even after cursing mine yesterday for the thousands of seedlings all over the place. Good luck.

    Just had a look, if you put helleborus party dress into a search thingy it comes up with websites of places selling them.

    Wow fidget, superb info. They are lovely, I got my mum one a couple of years ago and it's beautiful. I didn't realise until I looked up pictures of them today, that that was what I'd bought.
