Moving japanese anenome

I have had a good few japanese anenomes given to me from a friend who has dug them out of his garden! He gave them to me bare root and i have put them into pots with compost. Is there anything i need to do like cut flower foliage back etc to help them take? And is august ok time to do this? 


  • You should not have any difficulty establishing them at any time of year, they are bomb-proof. However, you should be aware that they are invasive if not restricted, sending up suckers a good distance from the plant

  • That wont be too much of an issue i want them to cover a fair area. And i am looking for as many excuses to get in the garden as i can image

    I moved some in May, after which it didn't rain for two months. They wilted and went black. Shortly after which OH got a bit strimmer happy and that did for them entirely. No sign of them for weeks. They're about a foot tall now and thinking of flowering. They are also coming up very happily in the place I moved them from. Luckily I like them. But they are, er, persistent image
