What an unusual year for my hellebores. Just cut a couple down now.....sounds barmy but I don't let seeds fall to spoil my clumps.....that were huge. purple flowers with yellow centres about 4' tall on very thick stems. Others were early,,some hsve not flowered and others have just started. Exactly why I don't really know but suspect the extra mild and wet winter
This year, esp, I have mulched generously with manure, compost, fish blood and bone and pelleted chicken manure plus some mushroom compost all thoroughly mixed. I wont allow any summer flowers at all and expect super things from all of them next winter.
