In which location do anemones feel comfortable?

  • As sunny as possible
  • Not too warm
  • Somewhat sheltered from the wind
  • Loose, not too acidic soil
  • Avoid waterlogging

How should the potting soil be made?

The soil should be slightly nutritious and acidic. If necessary, improve them with a little lime or ripe compost. Loose soil prevents waterlogging from building up.

What is the planting distance?

Are anemones preferable?

You can prefer anemones in a pot on the windowsill from February. The plants are only allowed outside when it is no longer freezing outside and the garden soil is no longer so cold.

Gradually get the plants used to the fresh air. Then simply put the anemones that have been grown in the pot outdoors. This makes it easier to dig up the onions later if they are not hardy anemones.

The first flowers appear in April. The flowering period can drag on until the end of May.

How are anemones propagated?

Anemones are propagated by sowing or by separating the small tubers that form on the roots. Varieties of anemones that do not form tubers can be divided to produce new plants.

Are anemones poisonous?

Anemones are slightly poisonous. When fresh, they contain protoanemonin, which can burn the skin on contact. If the toxin is absorbed, nerve damage and severe discomfort can occur. When dry, the poison turns into the non-toxic anemonine.
