Just planted out my 1st of 4 of these from a pot as per the inset #bed2jpea but I have a question... The rootball was less than half the size of the pot, the rest being a peaty compost, can I leave the others in their pots and plant them out later on when I have a better idea of where I can site them? Thanks

Mines in a pot just make sure they don't get too wet should be ok 😄

I've 4 more to find homes for but the other 3 beds get some sunshine to varying degrees and I'm not sure if Helleborus will like that?

I hate seeing plants in supermarkets that just need some water. Such a waste. If they sold them a bit cheaper surely they would fare better as customers would buy them. (Especially me😂)

OK, like @pelly I'm a sucker for a rescue plant but at £2 it would be unnatural to resist 😊. Now watered but waiting till tomorrow to plant it

You can cut the leaves back to the ground if they don't perk up. Lots of people prune hellebore leaves anyway during the flowering season to expose the flowers. :)

You've got it in one @ublaszko I watered it well as it was very dry to see if it perks up and I'm sure it'll do well once it's in the bed but thanks Urzula
