Every bloke should have a shed.

Paid a visit to the allotment other day.....just to get sundries, dont have an allotment....and their allotment shed was full of guys sipping tea and coffee.  Lovely but I would be bored after 10 mins of that I think.  

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

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

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.
