I was fierce late planting these Anemone bulbs that I picked up in BandQ in July at an end-of-line sale....but glad to see some are coming into flower. Indeed the take rate of these clearance bulbs were in the high 90% so I was delighted with my purchase..
These De Caen Anemone will be half-hardy for me, so I'll be lifting these when the weather gets colder and storing the bulbs in sand in a frost free location....but its great to get the planted like this so that they can build some energy for next year when they will be at their best....yeah it was late planting them...but a bargains a bargain!

hi, stumbled across this when trying to find out what best to do with my anemone blubs (also a great bargain in july) i think iam just going to go ahead and plant them, but would you recommend starting in pots or straight in the ground? im in Ireland, if that helps. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Eleanor, I would start them in pots first and then transplant later....
