For the first time I have planted hellebores in my garden. Now that spring is almost over and they are coming to the end of their flowering period what care do they need now?
Should I do anything? The flowers are pure white and have been beautiful. - Many thanks Philip.



Hello and welcome to GOY John.

I just leave my many helabores to fall naturally when past blooming then prune to tidy up .

Over the years now of growing I am finding many seedlings.

So yesterday I potted up my pink speckled helebore seedlings.

Not sure if they shall bloom true to same as parent flower.

Most of all enjoy the beauties they can be very addictive.

Agree with Scotkat's advice on growing hellebores, the seedlings wont come true to the parent but you can still end up with some interesting plants.

I have been advised to cut off the old leaves; they're not needed, and the plant will have more light.

Yes you can certainly do so Sheila
