A pic from the weekend. Wasn’t sure about my #anemonedecaen because when they were growing they splayed out everywhere but they’ve definitely grown on me 💜

I thought the same last year Alisa...loved the flowers but they were just so floppy!

A little scrunched up but after all the snow we had, discovered the first of my Anemone de Caen today 🌟

Morning Gtagers! 💡💡🙏🏼🙏🏼Please can I get some tips and this probably sounds like a really stupid question... I'd like to plant these bulbs directly into the bed but wondered how people generally do this in beds where they've already got flowers in... hard to explain my question but say you've got annuals going and you want the new bulbs to take their place when they die, how do you normally go about planting the bulbs in that area? Any advice would be great and thank you!

I normally plant these bulbs very close together for impact and towards the front/in pots. You could always sow hardy annuals in the spring once the bulbs are coming through. You can also place potted bulbs within your borders 😊 hope I've not confused you

😂😂 I got some of these last year and it said plant the nobbly bits up, the whole bulb was nobbly, I was just throwing them in the hole by the end, they came up lovely

Brilliant, thank you Kim, thank you Jayne, really appreciate your advice 👍🏼😊 @jonners73 @jaynehynesburton. Easier to wait I think until the bulbs are coming through like you say Kim, then looking at what can go in around them. Lol Jayne, can't believe it said that on the box 😂 I've got some very nobbly ones- one looks like a duck's foot!! Haha 🦆😂

...you could wait until the Summer annuals are finished before planting your Spring bulbs... or alternatively start your bulbs off in small pots and plant them out at a later date when the annuals are finished..then in late Spring you can plant annuals between the bulbs foliage which will still be visible

Brill, thanks Johnny. I think I need to just go for it when I see those bulbs come up and try to plant between if I don't go for the pots approach. Appreciate your advice 👍🏼 @ukjohnny
