Wow, Yann... did you buy them... ALL ? ? ?  :o :o  :o
I went to T.Delabroye's "Portes Ouvertes" three years ago. I had been a bit disappointed by what was left of his hellebores (but delighted with Arlette Dupont's snowdrops!)...now I understand why!!!.... YOU had been there before me!!!  ;D

No, sadly my wallet doesn't allow me to buy the whole nursery  ::)
I've met german, dutch, english and usual french customers, many buy between 6 to 10 plants, i guess to make the trip profitable.
First come, first serve, so if you visited the second or third opened week-end it's almost too late.
I didn't see Arlette, may be i'll see her on saturday.

Every time I see  photos of the Delabroye hellebores I think I would love to see them for myself - and every year I realise  my heart is not strong enough to take that much excitement!!
