Best time to plant in Zone 5?

lblack61(z5 NY)October 20, 2004

I ordered one of the gallon Hellebores to replace one that isn't doing so well and I wondered (afterward) if that was a good idea.

If I plant it outside and mulch it well, do you think it will be okay? OR

Is it possible to grow it indoors until Spring?

I planted some a couple of weeks ago (zone 5), watered them well and put some B1 (rooting solution) in the initial watering. Mine are doing great - putting on new leaves left and right! :)

WOW! Well, I got mine a few days ago and I immediately put it in the ground. We got a nice soaking rain not long after, so I think it will do well. It was in beautiful condition when I recieved it.
Thanks for responding :-)
