Hellebores will self-sow, or you can take its seed and sow it fresh in 1/4 inch of well-draining rich soil outdoors in late summer. Keep the area moistened and in a similar place as the parent plants. Then after maturing, transplant to different parts of your garden. Division: Hellebores take a while to establish, so division is seldom needed. If you must, dig the whole plant, wash off the roots and use a sharp, sterilized knife to divide the growth buds. Leave three buds for each division. Dig the hole twice as wide and the same depth as the mother plant when transplanting. Add root hormone to the spot and place the division in the center. Water the hole well and begin mixing in the native soil and compost combined to give it a fresh start. Keep the plant's crown at the soil level, so rot doesn't occur on the upper stem. Add mulch but not too deep and not next to the plant's stems to avoid holding too much water. Planting where there is plenty of good drainage is optimum for them. They prefer a neutral pH or slightly alkaline soil. Add amendments accordingly and check the pH levels with our 3 in 1 plant meter.
