PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Anemone hupehensis 'Hadspen Abundance' AGM|
|Windflower 'Hadspen Abundance'|
|Japanese anemones are best grown in a position where there is space for them to spread. They can be invasive but this is weighed against their attractiveness and usefulness in the garden. 'Hadspen Abundance' is a medium-sized plant with dark green lobed foliage on strong, straight stems which support pink cupped flowers with a rich yellow centre, appearing in autumn when most other plants have ceased blooming.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Best sown as soon as possible on receipt, but preferably from autumn to spring, fill small pots or modules with seed compost, compacting down well. Water the compost until it is well saturated, allowing surplus water to drain off. Tease out some of the woolly contents in the packet as thinly as possible and firmly press into the compost in each container, covering with 1mm compost. Place sown containers in sealed plastic bags and maintain temperature of 60-65F/15-18C for two weeks, misting if compost dries out. Move pots to cooler temperature, 35-40F/1.5-4.5C for six weeks, then exclude light and keep at 60-65F/15-18C. Germination should occur in 1-3 months. Very carefully transplant seedlings to individual pots, avoiding any root disturbance. Grow on under glass, then acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out in final positions.|
