    These low-growing perennials are much-loved for their large, dark-eyed flowers, which have velvet-like petals that open up to form gorgeous saucers. Traditionally anemone bulbs (tubers) are planted in spring and will produce flowers in early summer, however if they are planted later (up to the end of June), they will flower from August to October.

    Each collection Contains 60 tubers, 20 of each of the following.

  • Mr Fokker: Their intenesly coloured violet-blue flowers make charming additions to the vase and look lovely at the front of a sunny border. Grows to: 25cm.

  • The Bride: Slender stems rise from the mounds of dissected foliage bearing green-centred, white flowers in early spring. Their simple elegance looks divine when planted in large numbers. Grows to: 30cm.

  • Sylphide: The petals are an irridescent shade of pink and they surround boss of rich purple stamens - overall a very pretty effect. Use them with taller-stemmed tulips, which can soar above. Grows to: 30cm.

  • Garden care: Plant pre-soaked tubers 5-8cm deep and 15cm apart in light, sandy soil in a sunny, protected site. Cover with a cloche or dry mulch to protect against extreme winter weather.

Eventual height & spread

I bought the anemone collection last year and they have been truly outstanding. When they have finished flowering what do I do with the bulbs? Do they stay in the pot, or do I lift them? Thanks

Hello, These bulbs need a relatively dry summer dormancy, so if they are in light soil and full sun, you can keep them undisturbed where they are and protect them with a dry mulch in autumn. If however your soil is heavier, then you can lift them and store them in a bed of sand in a frost-free spot.

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
