Hellebores: Feeding and fertilizer

If the hole is prepared well, the plants do not require much feeding during the first few years.

Some lime and general fertilizer can be scattered around the plants in the summer. Do not drop the fertilizer in the heart of the plant: if this happens, the plant will burn.

In autumn, after cutting off the leaves, you may want to apply some humus, old manure or (garden) compost over and in between the plants.
