Plant Now: Anemones

Anemone coronaria
is one of my all-time favourite spring bulbs – and they’re brilliant value for money. They flower continuously from late winter to summer and they’re superb, long-lasting cut flowers. Most people plant the corms in autumn, but if you sow the seeds now (January to February), you’ll get more bang for your buck – and they’ll flower right on cue, in spring. The seeds will form corms for future years, so you can either lift them once they’ve flowered (in cooler spots) or leave them in the ground for the following year. Egmont Seeds has the variety ‘Mona Lisa Mix’ available to sow now.
