Hiya red dahlia,
Don't take hellebore cuttings. You will have seedlings, prob next year, pot these up.
Don't cut off leaves...unless diseased.....these feed your plant this summer
Remove flowered stems right to the base.....they are easy to distinguish from other stems
Don't dig up your hellebore or split for few years.....they don't like to be is disturbed
After flowering feed, water if dry and mulch

Mysterious hole appearance in the soil.

Getting less keen on GC now....truly.
Visiting a little nursery is a joy. Just to see,plants, many unusual and to meet the growers, many slightly eccentric albeit endearingly so, is a lovely experience. That cream tea? Get that on the way back..... A real Cornish cream tea with lashings of cream and strawberry jam on fresh home made scones. Usually cheaper than garden centres too
