autumn transplanting?

arlenebOctober 18, 2013

Hello, Hellebore experts!

I'm a long-time gardener, but am new both to my region (20 miles south of Nashville) and to Hellebores. I'd like to transplant some and wonder if it's okay to do it now, mid-October, in my area.

Thanks for the help!

I hope it's still early enough, I have several I plan on replanting this fall and haven't started on it yet! They should be mulched after transplanting, but this is the time temperatures drop enough that hellebores start to grow again after their summer rest.

The best time to do this is immediately after the bloom cycle....same with dividing. You can transplant now but there is a likelihood you may impact the flowering as well as the possibility of insufficient time for the plants to settle in and the roots start establishing before cold weather hits.
