St. Brigid Anemones

These can be planted from bulbs right now. They love very well drained soil, something we don't have in Cork and Kerry, but by adding plenty of grit, anemones perform very well indeed! Anemone bulbs should be planted at least twice their depth – I usually put mine down about 3 inches , but again, this depends on the size of the bulb.

They should be positioned in a nice, sunny area. The St. Brigid variety make fantastic cut flowers, more often seen in yesterday’sflorists. These flowers are very popular in continental countries and make for a wonderful posie of flowers.

It is best to put clumps of bulbs down together, groups of 3's or 5's – this gives a nice clump of colour. Anemones flowers for a long time and give great value.

 

A great new introduction is Anemone Pinafore. This is a very brightly coloured Anemone, with a strong stem, making it ideal for cut flowers. Anemones can be planted in spring and also in autumn. Now that we have the nice weather, you could get them down straight away.

It's good to soak your bulbs in a liquid food for a few hours before planting (Maxicrop is what I recommend). Anemones can be planted into pots and containers and they will be a talking point at your front door or patio!
