Anemone Blanda mix - Tubers plant in September to early spring. Any situation, but well drained and plenty of light. Soak the tubers in water for twenty-four hours before planting. It is not always easy to see which is top and bottom of the knobbly tubers. A little hint! - If in doubt, then plant them on their side. It works.
Most of the Anemone tubers are best planted with around 2in deep and 15cm apart in September to early spring in light, sandy soil in a sunny, protected site.
After planting, there is little to do other than await your display. For the first few years in permanent plantings of Anemones, nothing to do other than dress the soil with bone meal in the spring. After three to four years, it will be possible to dig up the Anemones in the dormant season - summer is best, after the foliage has died completely down - and carefully divide the groups of tubers you now have!
