These are the first anemones I've had no problems with. I soaked them for 24h then planted in a mixture of compost and sand in terracotta pots. The majority, if not all (didn't count), corms had leaves and quite a few flowers. I got these on sale so plated rather late in season and the summer was very hot this year, so I'm rather pleased with their performance. Lovely flowers and the service from SR is great.

Although product arrived promptly I have not had a single of the corms come up. I followed the planting instructions carefully and they were put in a good position in enriched clay soil with plenty of grit. I usually find Sarah Raven plants very good ( the osteospernum I bought are still going strong )so am extremely disappointed . what happened?

None of these corms produced a flower this year. Did I ourchase them too late? Will they produce a showing next year?

Very few flowers, probably the weather.

Service was fine, but only about 5 of the corms came up. I bought them because I had had a wonderful display of the pink ones the year previously, but whether it was the unusual weather we had this year, I do not know.

the product was as described. Delivery was within the timeline given and they all flowered wonderfully. This was the first time in years that I managed to get Freesia's to flower so profusely

The colour is wonderful, the best dark red anemone I've grown. Reasonably generous flowering and very good cut.

They came into leaf and flower very well in container. However shortly afterwards just seemed to wilt and look unwell. The weather was good and they had sufficient water. Initially started them off in the greenhouse until in leaf, could that have been the problem?
