Buy Anemone blanda blue-flowered winter windflower blue-flowered bulbs: A carpet of bright blue daisy-like flowers

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 4/5

    This is a wonderful plant that produces cheerful, daisy-like flowers in shades of blue and purple in March and April. These are perfect plants for naturalising in a mixed border around the base of deciduous shrubs, or adding spring colour to the edge of a woodland garden. For maximum impact, plant wood anemones in bold drifts in September or October, and if happy, they should spread quite quickly.

  • Garden care: Soak the tubers overnight in cool water and plant them (it doesn't matter which way up) 5cm deep and 15cm apart in well-drained, humus-rich soil. Ideally you should choose a spot where they can be left undisturbed so they can naturalise and spread.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

A real stunner....

This was delivered ( as usual) in excellent packaging. Put it in the garden in it's pot - then forgot about it and went off on holiday for three of the hottest weeks of the year, leaving it with minimal access to water. Came back and it was twice the size and blooming... this is a VERY easy care plant!

Wonderful flowers that have survived the recent storms

I have never been able to grow these before and as I have a dog planted them in pots so she can't eat the corms. They are excellent

Beautiful colour, delicate plants.

Lovely blue colour. Delicate leaves. Although a woodland plant, the flowers close when not in direct sun so put them somewhere that has sun for at least a part of the day. Not sure how well they naturalise though as the ones I bought last year didn't come back very strongly.

A new spring border for a windy garden Hi I have just had a hedge taken down and have a new border. It is overshadowed by a large eucalyptus tree and is in dappled shade until the afternoon, then it is in full sun. I am on top of the Chiltern Hills at 500' elevation and it can be windy. I would like a spring flowering border. I was thinking Hellebores, Pulmonaria and Aquilegias. Any suggestions, please? Nicholas

Hello Nicholas, If the bed is very windy, then I would keep most things low so they don't get blown over. Therefore, along with the ones you have already selected, I would look at the following. Convallaria http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/perennials/wildflowers/convallaria-majalis-/classid.78114/ Epimedium http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.epimedium/ Euphorbia amygdaloides http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/perennials/euphorbia-amygdaloides-purpurea/classid.2779/ Bergenia http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.bergenia/ Anemone blanda http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/bulbs/other-bulbs/anemone-blanda-blue-flowered/classid.2000015250/ I hope this gives you a few ideas.

Japanese maples make elegant focal points in a garden and seen in their full glory of autumn colour are absolutely breathtaking. They mix well with brilliant autumn-berries, picking up reds and oranges all around the garden. Although many species of maple

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
