I am ok to start planting Hellebores now? Will they survive while the weather is still cold?

Where have they been up til now and how big are they? Hellebores are very hardy plants but if they've never been outside it will come as a bit of a shock

Bought them from garden centre today about 1ft tall and in flower

They'll be fine if they've been outside in the garden centre. They sound nice plants. Are they in flower?

Yeh redish pink with dark green foliage, they are nice plants

I've started planting in the garden, just snowdrops and tete a tete daffs in the green. So glorious to get out and start a new year's gardening! lots of things have started in growth and when I pruned the hydrangeas (i always cut them right back) there were already fat buds that I felt sad to cut off. I'd obviously left it too late and gave them a setback. It is quite mild here in Wales, but I'd be quite happy to plant hellebores now. They are great garden plants - I love them. All I ever do to them is cut off the tattered old leaves so that the new flowers can be seen.
