Anemones are among the most cultivated bulbous plants, often used as cut flowers.
In reality these flowers are not produced by real and own bulbs, but by small fleshy rhizomes; these rhizomes, if uncoupled, tend to survive for some years, even if they normally dry up.
When we buy anemone rhizomes then we will take home small dry rhizomes. Before burying them place them in a basin containing warm water, for at least 6-8 hours, so that they can swell, to prepare for the development of leaves and new roots.
When our rhizomes are swollen again, place them on the ground, in a bright place, but sheltered from the sun during the hottest hours of the day; with a good rich and fresh soil.
The anemones are buried at a depth of about 2-3 times their diameter; if possible we place some rhizomes at a short distance from each other, so that they give rise to heads of flowers.
In autumn we can leave the rhizomes to dwell, but it is good to cover the area with straw or dry leaves, so as to protect them from the cold. If we fear low temperatures, we can extract them from the ground, let them air free, and then place them in a jute bag with sawdust, so that they remain cool, dark and dry until the following spring.
