One of the most eye-catching and productive spring bloomers. The mixed anemone bulbs have been a favourite in our gardens for many years. It flowers from July-September and grows 40cm high.
Outdoor Beds and direct planting
- Find a location where the soil drains well. While anemones aren’t fussy about soil, they will perform best in soil that provides good drainage.
- Site your mixed anemone bulbs where they will receive full to half day sun.
- Soak your bulbs for a few hours in lukewarm water to give them a little wake up call.
- Dig holes and plant the anemones 2.5 – 5cm down. Don’t worry about which side of the bulb needs to face up. Regardless of how the bulbs are positioned they will still grow.
- After planting, water anemones well, gently soaking the soil and settling it around the bulbs.
When in bloom, feel free to cut anemone flowers for little bouquets. This will not hurt the plants.
After blooming has finished for the season leave the foliage in place; don’t cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulbs for the future. Water as needed during active growth periods.
At the end of the summer the leaves will yellow and die back as the plant slips into dormancy. Foliage many be removed at this point. Your anemones will rest for a few months before beginning the next growing cycle.
Pots, Barrels and containers
- Fill your containers with good quality, well-drained soil.
- Make sure there are adequate drainage holes; anemones bulbs must never sit in waterlogged soil or they will rot.
- Site your anemones where they will receive full to half day sun.
- Soak your bulbs for a few hours or overnight in lukewarm water to give them a little wake up call.
- Dig holes and plant the anemones 2.5 – 5cm down and just about 2cm apart for the most brilliant displays.
- After planting, water your containers well, gently soaking the soil so it settles around the bulbs.
