Florist anemones don't need to be pre-chilled. Soak them for a few hours before planting to rehydrate and plump up the wrinkled corms.
Plant in 9cm pots or plastic cups, making a few holes in the base first. Once they flower, place in decorative pots.
Layer horticultural grit in the base. Mix up a free-draining compost using multi-purpose compost or John Innes No.3 with a few handfuls of horticultural grit.
Fill two-thirds full with compost then place the corm on top. Look for a tip and stand it facing upwards. Cover with compost. Position somewhere cold and dark and check regularly for watering and pests. Once leaves appear in 10-12 weeks, bring the bulbs into the house.
