Hiya red dahlia

Well I plant them probably 4" deep....purple sensation that is.  However, I usually pot them up instead.  So. I put a 1" layer of mpc then 3 bulbs then top up to top of 1 litre pot. When they shoot in the spring I plant them out exactly where I want them to be.

I plant the potted alliums deeper than the pot height

Does anyone know how to plant a rhizome for an anemone honorine jobert?

I understand that nut.  Can't mark every bulb can we?  However, I do put in little sticks to mark new bulb plantIngs

Hiya nut.  I expect they will be fine.  I just found I had more reliable growth from pots. Leave well alone now I think but mark where they are

Get them in pots ASAP ..  Water well.  Agree "nobble" bits on top.  Not too large a pot either.  Just enough to hold the root.

These days I don't grow jap anemones but used to sell lots of them.  At this time of year they will settle in well. They can take a while to flower but,paradoxically can also flower in their first summer.  They can be temperamental as Blue Rose has already said.

Lily, wouldn't it be lovely for you all if I could post my singing ?  In the car, in the shower and when I am water's edge when the sea is out that's when I think I'm a good singer 

Came out from wizard of Oz panto once and sang at the top of my voice "we've been to see the wizard of oz" to that song. (The multi storey carpark's acoustics reverberated everywhere). Suddenly realised I had a huge appreciative audience... But the children thought it was so funny cos I have a loud unmusical voice.  Hey, it was Christmas
