Which ones are you having trouble with Joan?

I had that problem so I planted them in pots and when they grew into strong plants planted them out in the garden - they look lovely now

Anemones (Just think "No ones eneny") are very easy.  You do not have tp worry if you are planting them the right way up as they right themseves.  Try in a pot or windowbox.  Anemone blanda will spread its lovely blue and white flowers and the wood anemone, Anemone nemorosa a little later. Anemone de Caen can be planted any time the ground isn't frozen ot flooded and will flower in the spring, summer and autumn, 8 weeks after planting.  The ones in the pictures flowered last year and were left in to flower now.  Buy from a good nursery who specialise in anemones.

If you are growing anemones from the dormant corms, are you soaking them first.

When I plant anemone blanda I usually presoak them for 24 hours just to kickstart them. It seems to help.
