What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
Anemone Anemone nemorosa Vestal
Vestal has snow white double flowers which are intricately formed. After taking their name from the Ancient Greek word anemo meaning wind, Anemone are commonly referred to as the ‘Windflower’. Anemone nemerosa, or Wood Anemone, is a native of the British Isles and prefers a slightly more acidic soil compared to other anemones. The plant develops cylindrical rhizomatous root which should not be out of the ground for an extended period of time so we highly recommend that you plant the bulbs immediately upon receipt in a dampish soil. Vestal will grow to a height of 10cm and will bloom from May, into to June in cooler areas. Vestal has also been presented with the RHS Award of Merit.
