Probably a really stupid question but only got into gardening last summer so that's my excuse! Planted anemone bulbs last autumn and am totally in love with them. Have seen them marked down to a euro but wondering what's the catch. Are they likely to be weak because they have been in packets for 6 months?
If only reason reduced is because most people won't be thinking about spring 2014 at this stage then Im going to snap them up!

I'd avoid them to be honest seefin.
They will have degraded quite a bit out in the air for 6 months.
