Division of Helleborus orientalis is best done in later Summer/early Autmn as they grow new roots as the temepratures begin to fall.
A little tale from a few years back.
We went to a local Supermarket (independent one) and waited while they unloaded a lorryload of plants. We looked at them as they were carried in and thought they were good quaality and price. didn't nuy as we already had all the ones we could see. Then drove to a near by gardem cemtre. Surpise, the same lorry was off loading there too. We looked at the plants, same size, same varieties same quality.................£10 more!
