Growing Anemone Blanda from corms

West Somerset, England Eng

Has anyone grown Anemone Blanda from corms? Should I soak them before planting? Is it better to grow them in pots and then plant them out as little plants - or to put them straight into the ground? Hope somebody can help with advice please.

On plant Anemone blanda



Just plant them out. Mine have self sown/spread over the years so they must be pretty easy

No need to soak,better planted in groups, will self seed very quickly and have a habit of appearing where you did not plant them!!!

Well I hope you have more success than I have ever had. I have planted them off and on, in every possible method over the last 30 years or so and never managed to get one corm to grow. I have them in the garden growing from bought plants, but never from dried corms.

That's how I've always grown them before, too, Owdboggy, but the corms came in a pack of mixed miniature bulbs. I might as well have a go, nothing ventured as they say! I am going to plant them in my new border...see blog...:-)

My anemone blanda are growing in an area shaded by a flowering cherry. You might want to give them some shade
