Moving Helleborus

I want to move a large clump of helleborus, the Lenten rose, which is currently in bloom. I am getting conflicting information on when best to do this. Could you advise please? DonFoley, Maynooth, Co Kildare Posted: 20/03/2017

Hellebores can be lifted and divided as soon as the flowers begin to go over and take on a green flush. Hellebore is in active growth and there will be some wilting, but the plants are robust and recover well. Give them a good watering to settle them. Or if you wish wait until September or October and move it then.
