How to plant Japanese Anemone

Japanese Anemones are hardy and can tolerate winter temperatures down to -20C. This means you can plant them directly outside in pots or borders in spring.

— Soak the roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting out.

— Plant your bare roots directly into clear, well-dug borders or start them off in temporary pots in spring and grow-on outdoors, then transplant later in the season as potted plants.

— Plant the roots so that they are fully submerged with the shoots just below the surface and any top growth exposed.

— Choose a position in partial, dappled or full shade.

— Space the plants 15-20cm apart

— Water-in after planting and keep hydrated when in growth
