History: Liz and Hugh Nunn have been breeding and propagating Hellebores for the last twenty years, and the wonderful result of this relentless hard work is the Harvington Collection of Hellebores. Using hand pollination, they have been continually selecting the very best strains of Hellebores to add to the collection. There are a wide range of colours within the collection ranging from white through to yellow, pink and red, and darker ‘Shades of Night’. Hugh & Liz Nunn have recently retired and their daughter Penny continues to breed new Hellebores in the Vale of Evesham.
