Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten. Plant hellebores in containers or borders in humus rich soil.Plant in dappled shade. Add well rotted manure or compost to improve very heavy clay or free draining gravel soils.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. The growth points of most bare root perennials should be set about an inch below the soil surface. New growth will appear in spring.

Hellebores are sometimes considered to be difficult to move. However after several years, when they are fully established, they can easily be lifted and replanted in Autumn.
