Ray Beckhurst, Hellebore grower of Jenray Gardens Nursery
February 4, 2004 Presentation - "Hellebores"
February 3, 2010 Presentation - "Hellebores"
Born and raised in a small Australian city one hour's drive from Melbourne, Gardening has always been a part of my life.
Growing up on an exceptionally deep suburban lot, we grew all our own vegetables, picked fresh fruit from the trees and collected fresh eggs daily from the chickens in the hen house.
My Dad had me growing veges at an early age while my Grandpa taught me how to prune fruit trees.
As a teenager I lived with my Grandmother in Melbourne where growing flowers first became a part of my life. Moved into a new home with my wife and two children, where I spent 3 years completely landscaping the property. In 1973 we sold and came to Canada on a 2 year working holiday, which has turned onto 36 years. I fully landscaped the place where we live in Surrey. The weather here is similar to Geelong where I come from, except for the sprinkling of snow we get here. In Geelong I had a winter garden so I was looking for a plant that would survive our winter.
I discovered Hellebores which quickly became my passion. I initially began my collection by buying from Herronswood nursery in Washington, which was expensive, So I started buying seed from England,Germany, and eventually Australia. I discovered that every seed would grow for me, I only needed one of each variety for my garden, the rest I offered for sale at Garden Clubs spring plant sales. I started my home based Jenray Garden Nursery business, learnt as much as I could about these wonderful plants, and have been discussing their virtues at Garden Clubs throughout the Lower Mainland, the Sunshine Coast and on the Islands for the past 15 years.

In 2009 they bought their Cawston field farm and Erik, their son,  came on as manager and partner in their continuing adventure. Erik now refers to them as mud farmers and himself as a dust farmer.  A reference to the two very different climates at our two farms.

January 7, 2015 Presentation - "From the Ground Up - West Coast Garden"
Gardening has been a constant thread through my whole life, it connects me to my family, I have made life-long friends through gardening and I have shared and been given many wonderful plants.  I was raised on a hobby farm in Port Coquitlam and my first experience with gardening was weeding in the family vegetable garden, it was hard, hot work and I hated every minute of it!   Then as I grew older I began to appreciate gardening and how fortunate I was to have grown up with a yearly abundance of fresh produce.   I love nature in general and seeing it in bloom gives me a great deal of satisfaction.  My Maple Ridge garden was done from nothing and it grew into over 250 perennials, annuals and vegetables in containers.
