When to pot up for plant sale next June?

Fleur(z5)July 25, 2012

I have some 2- to 3-year-old hellebores in an out of the way place that I'd like to pot up for a plant sale next June. When would be the best time to do this to encourage bloom next year?

They will put out a flush of root growth when the temps begin to cool in Fall. I would think would be a good time for potting them up, having them nice and full (both the plants and the pots) for an early summer sale.
