Q.Hellebore, Pines and Wet Soil

Anonymous added on February 25, 2014 | Answered

We lost our house in a flood and last week I dug and potted 20 hellebore to the inside. Our new home has white pines and water drains down the hill. We will put in a drain ditch above the flowers. Will this be enough to prevent rot and growth? My other site grew them well, clayish soil, some dryish. We grew all sorts of wildflowers there. I don’t want to lose them. I planted them in pails and pots from the dollar store.

As long as they do not sit in water, then that should be fine, but make sure that they still receive some water. You don't want the roots to dry completely.
