Hellebores, also known as Winter Roses, are one of our all-time favourite winter blooms

Kings Plant Barn Takapuna

A small perennial with deep green leaves, Hellebores are perfect in shaded garden beds all year round – but Winter is when they really shine!

As we venture further into winter, Hellebores will start to burst into bloom, with dozens of delicate purple, pink or white flowers on each plant

Hellebores are also a great source of winter food for the bees in your garden – pretty and practical… the perfect combo

Poll: Do you support a rates rise of 5 per cent in Auckland?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

Aucklanders will see their rates bills soar 5 per cent to help counteract a $1 billion fall in council revenue over the next four years.

The one-off hike, up from a planned 3.5 per cent increase, will add $36 to the rates bill of an average value home before annual increases return to the previous path of 3.5 per cent rises.

The proposed increase is included in the update of Auckland Council's 10-year budget, which starts in July.
