How to Plant: Plant your anemone corms as soon as they arrive in autumn (zone 7 and higher) or spring (zone 3-6) in borders or containers in a sheltered position. Soak the corms in water for 2-3 hours prior to planting. Place the corms with the ‘acorn’ pointing downwards. Plant the corms 3-5cm deep. Space the corms 5-10cm apart.

Plant Care Instructions: Water sparingly once the foliage emerges, and pick the flowers regularly to encourage more blooms. Do not overwater since it may lead to root rot.
