If you look very carefully at the corms, you should see a small lump (bit like a tine volcanic cone) in the centre ish of one side. That is the top of the corm. Not that it really matters, I more often than not plant them on their sides. Won't have many this year, seomething has dug the up and eaten them and they were beginning to make neice, self seeding clumps too.
thanks shall see if I can see what you are saying mary
I grew Anemone de Caen in ordinary potting compost in a large planter. The first year they were super. Then they started disappearing and I thought perhaps they were shortlived or not that hardy. Then I saw mice stealing the corms! Berghill says something dug up and ate his (or should it be hers?) so perhaps he had the same problem.
