The Lenten Rose
I always cut away the old leaves before the plant starts to flower. Not only does it make it easier to photograph the flowers. It also gets rid of old leaves that are always susceptible to Hellebore leaf spot. Then in early spring I give it a nitrogen rich feed to encourage a new crop of leaves. If you don’t want seedlings then cut the old flower stems off. The seedlings will never be ‘true to type’ unless you self pollinate them yourself.
