Potted Winterberry and Helleborus

Zone Carroll, Ohio 43112 | Anonymous added on January 7, 2018 | Answered

I got a potted Winterberry plant and a potted Helleborus HGC Jacob at Christmas time. What should I do with these plants until I can get them in the ground this spring? I live in Ohio Southeast of Columbus, zone 6.

Helleborus and winterberry plants are quite cold-hardy, so one option is to place the pot outdoors (after a few days or gradual hardening off) in a sheltered spot, such as next to the house, during the winter, and then plant it in spring after the ground thaws. Another option is to simply keep them as houseplants for now.
