Anemone ‘Pastel Mix’
Products have been much harder to source this year due to world wide heat induced crop failures, however I have been able to secure corms in a slightly smaller size than normal. I have reduced the cost price accordingly.
Anemone Pastel Mix is a new generation of Anemone that I have been trying to source for you for a couple of years.
I’m so excited that this year we are finally are able to share them!
Tall, large ‘Florist quality’ Anemone Pastel is completely different from the varieties available in your local garden centre or online.
Usually reserved only for professional growers these corms are now available to you in small quantities giving you a unique opportunity to try them in your own gardens.
Packet size: 10 bulbs
How to Grow:
Corms will arrive in a dehydrated state and need to be soaked in a bowl of water for 12 hours before planting in pots or cell trays of at least 6.5cm square.
Rodents love to steal your precious corms so you need to protect them until the corms develop into plants.
Growing Anemones will be new to most gardeners, so I will be providing step by step growing advice and videos, if you subscribe to my You Tube channel you will be notified as each video goes live.
Busy gardeners can now plan ahead with our new season Anemone & Ranunculus Handbook.
Autumn started corms can bloom as early as mid February, however a cold Spring will delay the start of flowering until March.
Late Winter / early Spring started corms generally flower for us from the beginning of May and continue blooming well into June.
Local weather conditions will affect the exact blooming times. Anemones will need frost protection to protect the buds and blooms from damage.
Autumn sown corms will be taller growing up to 50-60 cm, Spring started corms will still reach an impressive 45-55 cm.
Position plants in full sun.
Cutting /Vase Life:
With a vase life of up to 10 days, anemones make a supreme cut flower.
Cut as soon as flowers open to fairly shallow water, deep warm water can make stems perish prematurely.
Place flowers straight into buckets of clean clear water. We rest our stems in a cool dark location for at least a few hours in water, preferably overnight, This is called conditioning.
These corms have been bred for the professional cut flower industry. F1 hybrid hand pollinated, you may occasionally receive the odd ‘rogue’ a colour outside your selection.
