How to keep Hellebore healthy until I can plant it

huntsvillegardenerFebruary 13, 2010

I just bought a Hellebore (Swirling Skirts - yummy!) at a garden show in Nashville. It's in a 6 inch growers pot and very healthy. I'm sure it was greenhouse-grown and I need to know what to do with it until the ground is thawed and I can plant it. I don't have a garage, but I do have a carport. I have some things overwintering there, like an ivy, some chives, some succulents. Can I put it out on the carport? I'm worried about keeping it in my warm house (already about 15 hours in here). Thanks!
