Top Tips

Plant generously in bold swathes for the ultimate spring display of flowers. Contrasts beautifully with snowdrops. Pre-soak tubers in water overnight before planting to help them get started, and they will start to grow much more quickly.

Care Information

  • Plant the pre-soaked tubers 5-8cm (2-3in) deep and 15cm apart in light, sandy soil in a sunny, protected site
  • Corms can be started off in pots and transferred into the garden when all risk of frost is passed.
  • Site your anemones where they will receive full to half day sun.
  • After planting, water anemones well to settle the soil around the corms. When blooming has finished for the season don't cut off the foliage - the leaves are needed to store energy for the winter.
  • Water as needed during active growth periods and feed with a general-purpose fertiliser every 2 weeks while in active growth.
  • At the end of the summer the leaves will yellow and die back and the plant goes into dormancy - leaves can be removed at this point. Your anemones will rest for a few months before starting into growth again.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back – they’ll come back bigger and better each year, just cover with a mulch of well-rotted manure or compost to protect against extreme winter weather.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist
