Autumn Maintenance for Hellebores
Mid to late autumn is the best time to remove the old foliage on established Hellebores and to feed your Hellebores.
For Helleborus x hybridus varieties that have been planted for two or more years and are a reasonable size you can remove all of the old foliage right down to the ground. Leave any new growth. This will tidy up your plants and show off the flowers this winter to better effect. For the taller shrubby species Hellebores such as H. argutifolius, H. lividus, H. x sternii or H. foetidus, don’t remove the foliage now, wait till after flowering in spring.
At the same time you can give your Hellebores some food. Any complete fertiliser (ie one that has nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous) such a dynamic lifter or osmocote will be fine. A light dressing of dolomite lime will also be appreciated.
