Stunning bedding anemone flowering mid-winter. A stunning mix of all colours and bi-colours. Flowers are born above neat 'parsley' like foliage. Anemones are easy to grow, flowering for months with little effort and make a lovely cut flower.
Soak your bulbs overnight in a class of water with 1/3 strength seasol solution. The bulbs will swell overnight, and be perfect for planting the following day. This helps to create a more uniform flowering period.
Anemones prefer a full sun or partly shaded position. Prepare your soil to a depth of 20cm, ensuring the soil is light and fluffy. Plant bulbs approximately 10cm apart and 2cm deep.
Early to Mid Spring
Cool to Mediterranean

After flowering care
Leave these in the g round. You may find they start to flower less after a few years so its best to add some more each year.
