From the horse's mouth few years back, Ashwoods advised 2 feeds....spring and late summer.
other growers suggest late winter feeding.
i am a great advocat of seaweed though and during the early growing season I apply a seaweed spray In addition to general fertiliser. For me hellebore leaves are tough by September so I have opted for spring feeding on new growth.
i think the most important factor though is good soil.....therefore a good mulch
