I have a large clump Hellebore left unattended until now. The large leaves look healthy and flowering was good early this year. I need to tidy area. How do I tell old growth from new and when can I cut back to neaten. Also when to feed. Thanks

Generally, you will feed in early spring, and again in summer. They are not heavy feeders and will gladly accept some compost as mulch. Otherwise, a balanced fertilizer will suffice.

Pruning and division, which it looks to be in need of, should be done in fall.
