Spring is in the air! Lawnmowers are being fired up, the bees are busy on the Hellebores and bulbs are fast emerging out of the soil.
Now is a great time to buy our Harvington Hellebores® as pot plants or to pre-order them as plug plants.
And why not give Roscoea a try? They are available now and are great value for money – starting from just £4.99 each. We would always recommend the ones with a ‘Harvington’ prefix because these have been selected for vigour and reliability. They are hardy and perfect for filling in gaps in your border in semi-shade. The earliest varieties flower in April, but the later ones flower in August – all of them offer colour in your garden for several weeks. We are despatching them now as tubers ready for planting out direct into your garden or to pot up.
We have been growing the exotic looking, but hardy Arisaema candidissimum for a several years on the nursery and every year we are wowed by them. The perennial corms stay dormant right through until May when their striking flowers start to emerge towards the end of the month and their large glossy architectural leaves unfurl thereafter. They are straightforward to grow in well-drained semi-shade.

Now is the best time to plant Erythronium bulbs- and that’s why you can buy them here now. We despatch within 10 working days (usually less). All bulbs are flowering size and freshly lifted to order.

We LOVE receiving feedback from our customers – see the following comments received last week:
“I just wanted to say thank you for my hellebore plugs. They arrived much quicker than I expected, beautifully wrapped, all in perfect condition. They are now all happy growing in pots.” Katherine, Oxford
“Thank you so much for my order which arrived today. I am delighted with the quality of the plants, the packaging and the speedy service – especially against the Covid background that we are all living with at the moment and I hope to place future orders with you – that is if I can manage to squeeze any more plants into an already overcrowded garden. I will most certainly recommend you to all of my gardening friends. ” Patrick from Belfast, he ordered Roscoea and Hellebore pot plants
“The plants are beautiful and in excellent condition for planting.” Patricia from York, she ordered Meconopsis ‘Slieve Donard’ and Arisaema candidissimum
“I’m very impressed with the Hellebores… Also the recyclable packing and your knowledgeable help with my order” Trevor, Woking
It is such a boost to the Twelve Nunns team – Thank you!
We are still sending out our plants. Our team is small and local… in fact very local. It’s myself and two children (after they’ve done their homework each day) and three lovely ladies from the village who walk to work. We are all keeping our distance and would be delighted to receive and despatch your orders or answer any queries.
Our packaging is all cardboard based and therefore very low risk in terms of spreading the dreaded virus! What better way to cheer yourself up than to buy one of our lovely plants today.
We are sending out some lovely looking plants this week and there are plenty more for you to buy. Our website is regularly updated with stock – so anything that you can see for sale, is for sale!
We have just updated the stock availability for our Harvington Hellebores® in 9cm pots on our website – so do browse. We have grown some extra plants of colours that are less widely available, including Helleborus ‘Harvington Single Black’ , Helleborus ‘Harvington Double Limes’ and Helleborus ‘Harvington Double Yellow’.
Look at our Roscoea tubers on the website – we are starting to despatch next week through to the end of March.
They are hardy with striking, exotic looking flowers. Straightforward to grow and sent with clear planting instructions – why not try them for colour in your garden from May through to early September https://www.twelvenunns.co.uk/nursery/plant/roscoea/
