Remove tattered hellebore leaves
Helleborus niger, also known as Christmas or Lenten rose, flowers between December and march.
Yours may be in bloom now, and if it is, deadhead as flowers fade so the energy goes back into the plant rather than creating seeds.
Remove the old, tatty leaves to make room for new growth and reduce the risk of rain-splash, which can carry fungal spores.
Mulch the root area afterwards, avoiding the crown.
Removing old leaves keeps the plant healthy
Hellebores are an early year delight
