Q.growing hellebores in containers
I left plants on the deck in their containers. Some are still green but droopy, others have been pruned to just a clump of stems, some still feel firm and some are soft – fearing they are dead. I have not really watered, leaving them to be snowed on. I felt the soil and it is still moist. Should I be doing anything different? It is March. Should there be more signs of life at this point? Help!!!

They sound like they are fine if they are still firm and green. Plants in containers are typically a little late in coming out of dormancy because they are more exposed to cold then plants that are in the ground. Give them a little extra time and I am sure they will bloom beautifully!
