Neil, the time to foliage feed them us as soon as the leaves appear, which is often very early in the season, February even. OR, put a granular type food on in autumn when the roots begin to grow.

The green is algae, the froth is from that and yes it is safe to use on plants, just don't drink it. Simple in a way, if the water smells ok, or has no scent then it is usable.

It is only that our Hellebores are covered in these tiny white skins and the really do look like white fly, but aphid skin is what they are.

That  is normal behaviour for most Alliums. It makes showing them quite difficult as you either have to remove all the old leaves or, trim the sear ends of to look like the leaves are still whole.

If the stem comes away at the base then that is fairly normal, once the plant flowers the stem is only barely attached to the bulb. If snapped off  up the stem then blame molluscs. They have a habit, in this garden at least, of eating haf way through the stem.
