Autumn is coming to an end so it’s now a good time to think about cutting back your hellebore foliage to expose new growth.  This will help to maintain plant health and ensure your Hellebore put on a good show in early Spring.  In this week’s installment of our how to garden series Michael AKA @MikeTheGardener shows us all how far to cut back and what to watch out for.

Hellebore are fantastic flowers that give great Winter colour when there is little else about. To ensure you do get a good winter show it’s best to cut the old leaves back to expose the new growth and new buds.  Hellebore can be prone to black spot so it’s wise to check the leaves and remove any that are showing signs of black spot.  It’s advisable not to compost these leaves and instead dispose of them carefully.
