Anemone is an easy plant that does not need special cultivation care to bloom. We choose sunny or semi-shady places to plant anemones. Although the anemone is resistant to cold winter temperatures, we prefer to plant it in sheltered positions, as it is sensitive to strong winds tearing the petals of its flowers. We plant the anemone tubers at a depth of about 3-4 centimeters and at distances of 15-20 centimeters between them. In order for them to sprout faster, before planting, make sure to place the anemone tubers for 1-2 hours in water. If we plant on a balcony, we choose pots or planters with a low height and place the anemones in positions facing south or west. Although the anemone is relatively resistant to disease and insect attacks, it is advisable to spray preventively with a solution of grated green soap to deal with the meligra insect. Meligra is a significant problem for anemones, as it sucks the plant tissues and creates characteristic honeydew on the leaves of the plants. In conditions of dense planting where we have increased humidity, temperature and poor ventilation, the fungal disease of rust can develop which affects the leaves of the anemone. To deal with rust, we spray with a copper solution, while at the same time removing and destroying the affected leaves, as they are foci of infection.
The anemone needs regular watering twice a week during the spring and autumn periods, while in the winter period at less frequent intervals. In early spring, during the growth period of the anemone flowering, we add a complete liquid or water-soluble fertilizer rich in phosphorus and potassium every 2-3 weeks. Anemone when planted in the garden needs pruning to remove unwanted weeds, while it is important to remove its flowers after they have matured and dried to encourage the growth of new blooms.
