bought a white anemone and it says plant at soil level, its 2 pieces of stringy root. do I just put it lying on top of soil and cover lightly or will I put it in a pot until it grows. That soil level thing has me confused, usually just dig a hole, put things in and they grow
Two pieces of root - are they joined together? If so the join is the top of the plant.
I'd put them in a two litre pot of John Innes No 2 loam based compost with some added leafmould and a bit of horticultural grit. Plant with the top just at the surface of the soil and put some grit on top.
Place in a semi-shaded corner of the garden and stand well back
You'll soon get a decent sized plant ready to plant out into the garden.
