Anemone’s are great value, and incredibly easy to grow. With very little effort, they can reward you with up to 6 months flowering time by stagger planting.
For best results, they should be chilled for 5-6 weeks prior to planting (we’ve already done this for you!), then soaked in fresh running water for 10-12 hours.
Try to avoid high temperatures, as Anemone’s like the soil to be 12-15 degrees for optimum germination.
Anemones provide blooms 6-8cm across in a stunning display of reds, rose, lavender, blue, white, and much more, from early Winter to late Spring- they are highly valued as a cut flower.
