This week we discuss one of our favorite spring (and fall) flowers to grow, anemones (Anemone coronaria). In our experience they are relatively easy and disease and pest-free, and they endure (even like!) our cold springs and falls.
In this episode we talk about
· Pre-sprout processes
· Pests and diseases
· Harvesting, vase life and pricing
