do I cut back hellebores, if so when?

Posted: 01/08/2014 at 19:14

If it still has some flowers remove those.  Cut off any diseased leaves right to the ground.  Mulch if you can.  However, too early to remove healthy leaves......an autumn  job

Trying to handle my mother....home from hospital.  92 and horrendously forgetful and confused. 100% attention required.  Difficult

Fluffy Cloud

Walther Funcke, nice coppery orange.  I cut it back in early June and it makes height of about 2' 6"".   Moonshine too is about the same after the same treatment.  Secret is to grow in poorish,,dryish soil I think.  Terracotta is also nice, for an achillea, at about 3'.  All compact when compared with Cloth of Gold.

Get as big a clump as possible.  Either put in large pot or two or plant in ground.  You could dig it up and put in bin liner with damp soil around if.  Tie it around the rootball and leave in the shade 

cancer has meant I can't manage my garden

Morning Trudi.

Some nice comments there.  Just want to add my support..... Cancer and its treatment is a roller coaster ride, isnt it?  Hopefully, it will all go well with ??ou.

I,wouldn't worry too much about your garden...do what you can and enjoy what looks like a lovely garden. Theres no need to rush into anything drastic, is there ?  

Your garden ...as it is....looks a relaxing place to be in so it will probably feature strongly in your recovery. 

Good luck.  Clearly you have support here too

Morningcake dude

Yes, use glyphosate.  Choose a dry slightly cloudy day......stromg sun can dehydrate treated leaves.  You need at least 5 hours of dry weather for it to work properly.
