can any of you knowlegable GOY friends please tell me what to do with a hellebore now flowers have all finished.



Do nothing. If you want it to self seed and have more plants then enjoy the fading flower and the seed head. If you do not want any babies then remove the seed pods from the centre of the flower and leave the flower to fade gently over the next few months.

I don't do anything with mine, they flower year after year. Do as Owdboggy suggests.
