Plug hellebores and what to do with them

Hi if I was to order plug hellebores now. Would I be able to plant them out or do I need to pot them on. 

Thanks in advance.

    I would pot them on until the roots fill a 3 inch (7cm ) pot and then plant out in Spring. Keep them in a cold frame or up against a house wall with a bit of protection. They will not need heat. Do not keep them inside.

    So so I could plant them out this year later in spring??

    You can plant them out any time from Spring to autumn, if they’re not very big, keep them till autumn.
