August 19th, 2019 – Margot Moser: Hellebores

Margot was born with a trowel in her hand and has no intention of ever putting it down.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t until she took Master Gardener courses 20 years ago that she realized she should have pursued a career in horticulture rather than teaching.

The Master Gardener manual inspired Margot to design a perpetual garden journal called ‘My Growing Gardenbook’ which has sold over 8000 copies across Canada and the US in garden centres and gift shops.

There is such a wide range of gorgeous winter blooming beauties to choose from, and Margot will share her tips and techniques for keeping these handsome hellebores looking their best, all year long.
