An unusual and beautiful coloured anemone

5

This anemone has a fabulous rich colour, one of many of the more unusual plants availlable from Crocus. Their web site offers a rewarding search for plants not generally stocked by the big plant centres.

These wonderful flowers come up quite early in later winter, early spring and stay in bloom for a couple of weeks. I have planted them under trees and want them to naturalise but nevertheless plant more and more each year. Good to plant with rananculus which bloom shortly after the anenomes.

I planted these in terracotta pots so I could place where colour was needed. They have stood up to light frosts. Will order more for next year to give more impact

I bought some of these bulbs but didn't plant them at the time stated i.e October/November. Is it too late to plant them now in January. My ground is clay on chalk so I was planning to plant them in a pot and then decide where to put them in the ground later on. Where and when can I plant them if I want flowers this year?

Hello there Normally these spring flowering bulbs would be planted in the autumn, but you can plant them now for an early summer display, but I wouldn't plant them out in the garden now as the ground is frozen. Planting in pots will be fine but make sure you have good drainage by adding some grit in with the compost. You will need to pre-soak the tubers before planting, then keep the soil moist but not too wet, otherwise they can rot. Hope this helps.

my anemone just lays down, it wont stand up and doesn't have many leaves. I cut the flowers off to encourage more growth but that hasn't really helped. It is situated in partial shade, in well drained soil, though maybe a little overshadowed by my Crocosmia. Can you give me any advice Thank you

Hello, This plant prefers a spot in full sun - otherwise the growth can get a little sparse. If it is not getting sun for the best part of the day (and you don't suspect a cat or other animal is squashing the plant), then I would be tempted to move it to a better spot after it has died back.

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
