Dividing Hellebores

Doris_J(Z8 WA)April 24, 2004

Could those of you with experience please give some advice on dividing Hellebores? Are there any special considerations (for instance, time of year, only during a full moon, etc...)? Thanks!

Doris I have divided mine in spring and fall. Though I was told after the fact that you weren't supposed to divide them at all!!!! They did just fine and didn't seem to mind at all. I have since learned that it is sort of plant particulars as to which ones you can divide. Below is a link with a table that gives the info on which ones divide well.

Hope that helps
