How to grow Ja­panese anemones

Garden Answers (UK) - - Celebrate -

Like many ram­bling plants, these can be hard to get go­ing. Buy a well-grown pot­ted plant and keep it wa­tered in its first grow­ing sea­son be­cause these anemones can flag in dry con­di­tions be­fore they get es­tab­lished. Plants pre­fer fer­tile soil that holds mois­ture, be­cause in their na­tive coun­try sum­mers are wet and warm and win­ters dry and cold. Leave them to their own de­vices once planted be­cause they dis­like dis­tur­bance. To in­crease plants, lift off­shoots from the main plant as they emerge in late spring. Pot them up in plas­tic pots of soil-based com­post to keep roots cool. This is also the best time to re­strict plants. They can set fluffy seeds, so dead­head in au­tumn.
