Prior to planting, anemone bulbs should be soaked in water overnight. Choose a position in full sun on light sandy, well drained soil, and plant them in groups at a depth of 5cm (2") deep.
Anemone bulbs require a dry, dormant period in summer when the foliage begins to die back after flowering in early summer. Do not water them during this period. In autumn, apply a dry mulch of leaf mould or chipped bark to protect the bulbs from winter wet. Caution: The sap of Anemone coronaria is an irritant to the skin and eyes and harmful if eaten.

  1. different but lovely

    By CHRISTINE CORBY 21-04-2014

    Bright splash of colour on long stems and look lovely next to pink and white 'bleeding hearts' even after recent rain. Just one thing they are not red at all but the most striking silky blue!

  2. Fantastic display

    By Caroline Broome 24-05-2013

    These huge blousy anemones have been in flower for weeks all through spring, at a time when everything else is still emerging. And they grow equally well in sun or shade.
