Planting Anemones and Ranunculus in Containers
For those without a greenhouse my advice is not to start corms in the Autumn.
Pots need protection against extreme weather such as snow, frost and heavy rain so for easiness I will leave mine in the greenhouse to grow for the time being, but they can go outside on sunny days to start acclimatising to the outside environment (I find this useful to free up a bit of space while I work on other plants in the greenhouse, putting them back once I’m done).
As we head into Spring we will be able to leave pots outside day and night, but in a sheltered spot. HOWEVER we will still need to bring pots back undercover during cold frosty spells.
During Spring temperatures usually recover fairly quickly and pots can go back outside by morning.
But we do sometimes get caught by a short spell of extreme cold so keep this in mind when planning your planting.
