Volunteer seedlings potted up -- now what?

I'm new to hellebores so have newbie questions!

Someone just gave me several shovels-full of volunteer seedlings from under her plants. I potted them in paper pots -- all 48 of them!! -- and need advice on what to do next. Should I put the flats outside in a shady area or in my plant room under my seedling lights for a while till they seem to have recovered from their shock and are growing? Or something else?

This was sort of a spur of the moment thing so I haven't had a chance to read through this board -- will do so later tonight! If my question has already been answered, my apologies!

Thanks . . .

Our zones are very different and likely our weather, but if they've been outside, I'd leave them outside. Put them someplace protected from wind and sun, keep them moist.
