I now know I am a senior citizen for sure, my back and knees, told me so *chuckle*
Yesterday, I removed the nails and hammered in staples along the sides of the frame to attach the twine to. There shouldn't be more nasty words from me as I work in my garden plot.
Where do I plant my hellebores?
Your hellebores should be planted in a partially shaded, moist site. If you are in an area that has hot summers, it is most important that the plants be shaded from the afternoon sun.
How do I plant my hellebores?
Dig a hole that is twice as wide and deep as the container the plant is in. Work this soil well and incorporate a balanced, slow-release fertilizer into the planting hole. Backfill the hole and set the plant even with ground level, firming the soil around it.

What should I do in order to have my hellebores increase in beauty from year to year?
The hellebore's evergreen foliage begins growth early in the season, and may be cut to the ground in late fall before the new flower stems emerge. As the flowers fade and seed pods form, you should remove the flower stems to prevent seedlings from growing in the crown of your plant.
