- Corms anemone castellated
- Drainage (expanded clay or gravel)
- Peat pots.
Landing. Tubers of anemone castellated very dry during storage. Let them soak for a day before planting in a solution of Alpin (4 ml in a glass of water). In peat cups pour the soil up to half and moisten well. Press the tubers into the soil and cover with a slightly damp ground from the top 3-5 cm above the tubers. Therefore, the lower part of the tuber lies in the very moist substrate, and the growth point only slightly damp. Do not water. Just spray it out. After the leaves start to water, but very carefully. Anemone castellated native to the Caucasus and does not tolerate water stagnation. During the germination of the tubers maintain a temperature of not lower than + 14 degrees to +25 degrees.
The choice of location. In may, when the earth warms up, it's time to plant anemones in a permanent place. For planting, select a Sunny, well-lit and sheltered place. It is best to plant anemones in the South wall of the house. Day the wall will warm up and the flowers will get more heat. But anemone castellated don't like direct sun all day, consider this when planting.
Dig a planting hole or a groove depth of not less than 50 cm thick layer of drainage fill: expanded clay or gravel. Fill the pit with earth. The soil should be loose, fertile, with the addition of ash. Allow the soil to settle during the day, then pit the size of earthen coma. Carefully remove anemones from the cups together with the land and put on the prepared place. Try not to disturb the earth com. The distance between plants should be at least 15 cm planting Depth should be such that the previous ground level has not changed. That is, the cups should not be buried, but should not rise above the General soil level in the garden. Carefully pour.
Tubers of anemone castellated cannot be stored more than 1 year. If you buy tubers in the fall and will plant in the spring, they should be only a fresh crop.
Very difficult to understand which side to plant the tuber in the ground, because the overwintered tubers of anemone castellated look like a shapeless cake. Please note that the flat side of the tuber is the top. It will come from Rostock. Often anemones die because the tubers are planted upside down. If the tuber is quite shapeless, like put him on the flank. Sprout will be easier to get to the surface.
