Yes, they’re free, and yes, there’s a catch. Barry Glick and the staff at Sunshine Farm and Gardens breed hellebores, the fanciest fancy-pants hellebores you ever saw. And before they can sell them, they have to name them. Just to make things interesting, they have an ongoing Hellebore Naming Contest. You look over the candidates, and submit what you think is an appropriate name of no more than two words. If they decide to market that hellebore, and if they use your name, they will send you a free 4-inch pot of the hellebore you named. Such a deal. All right: yet another way to waste time on the internet. But it might yield you a free plant.
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
