Many thanks for the responses. I did wonder about planting them on their sides! They are now soaking overnight, and will go in first thing tomorrow.

I know this is probably a really dumb question ... but which way up do I plant anemone blanda corms? Rounded side up, or the side with what could be embryonic roots or embryonic shoots?

On plant anemone blanda



I rely on the fact they will sort themselves out, because I cannot work it out either!

Best to first soak them for 8 hours. If you can see some fine hairs, these are the remnants of the previous stems and the corms should be planted with these upwards.

As Surreylad says, if you are unsure, plant on their side and they will fine their own way up.
