    Frequently Asked Questions

    Planting Anemone St. Brigid bulbs, also known as Anemone coronaria or windflowers, is a simple process that rewards you with stunning, deep purple-blue flowers in the spring. To ensure optimal growth, select a well-drained, fertile location with full sun or partial shade. Prepare the soil by loosening it and mixing it in compost or well-rotted manure.

    Soak the bulbs (technically corms) in lukewarm water for a few hours to help with germination. Plant the bulbs about 1-2 inches deep and 2-3 inches apart, with the pointed end facing upwards. Water them thoroughly after planting and maintain consistent moisture throughout the growing season. Adding a layer of mulch can help conserve moisture and suppress weeds.

    The optimal time to plant Anemone St. Brigid bulbs is during the fall or early spring. Fall planting is ideal in milder climates, as it allows the bulbs to establish their root systems and prepares them for a vibrant display of blooms in the following spring.

    In colder climates, it's better to plant the bulbs in late spring once the ground has thawed and the threat of frost has passed. Anemones are hardy in hardiness zones 5-9, but not in colder climates.

    So actually it is a personal preference, because you can plant Anemones a few times in the year and they will bloom within a few months after planting.

    Anemone St. Brigid bulbs typically take around 2-3 months to bloom after planting. The exact time depends on factors such as soil, climate, and planting conditions. Ensure the bulbs receive proper care, including well-drained soil, adequate sunlight, and consistent moisture.

    If you plant the bulbs in the fall, they will bloom in early spring, providing a burst of rich purple-blue color to your garden. Follow our steps on how to plant and care for your Anemones and you’ll have a gorgeous display of flowers.

    Caring for Anemone St. Brigid bulbs after blooming involves several essential steps to ensure their continued health and vigor. First, allow the foliage to remain intact and continue photosynthesizing, providing energy for the bulb. Only remove the leaves once they have turned yellow and withered.

    Reduce watering gradually as the foliage dies back to prevent rot or fungal infections. In colder climates, consider storing them indoors. Finally, to maintain healthy plants and ensure bountiful blooms the following year, apply a balanced fertilizer in the spring.

    Anemone St. Brigid bulbs are not considered deer resistant. Deer are known to graze on a wide variety of plants, including many types of anemones. While some gardeners report success in deterring deer from their anemones, others find that these plants are occasionally targeted by these herbivores.

    To protect your Anemone St. Brigid bulbs from deer and other wildlife, consider using physical barriers such as fencing, netting, or cages. Alternatively, you can apply deer repellents or incorporate plants that are known to be deer-resistant, like lavender or Russian sage, to help deter them from your garden.
