I have this tree shrub for over 30 years and I have few problems with it. Yes it does throw up suckers but you just re-move these and re-pot /plant or throw away and if it begins to drop its branches you just prune it to  a standing shape, it takes it.it is a pretty tree  in Autumn and the seed flowers are striking. but plant it in the right place as the branches do hang a bit.

When do I cut back my Hellebores?

I leave mine until spring as I like the flowers and the leaves.

take a twig and plant in replacement if there is room  and you dispose of the old one. I have grown  a willows from twigs and they grow fast and big but it would be nice to think that the same tree is being re-planted.

Bay tree close to house...

my bay is near our back wall and has been there for years by being  kept clipped and we have had no trouble (touch wood).

Advice needed please

In  sheltered area I would try a bay tree but unless you grow it yourself from  a small cutting it could be costly.

I would wait until  spring and put it in slightly bigger pot but not too big and water and feed req in summer and make sure it does not dry out in winter too much.

nothing down this end in  the west. I visited Hunstanton  in the summer a lovely beach and I can see how Norfolk can flood so easily.
