Maureen, most certainly they will. Seedlings always...always...grow in the WRONG places and in this case too near established clumps. Try to dig them up next year and it will be more difficult. Plus you can plant them exactly where you want them. It's what I do Maureen to great effect
the deep pot thing? Sure, when you buy established hellebore plants they are in deep pots because they develop deep roots. However, potting on now...9 cm or slightly larger will suffice.....will be absolutely fine. My regime is to pot on several times to get a really good plant to put out from at least a one litre size. Incidentally at this stage john innes compost is best.
they will prob take 3 years to flower Maureen
