I asked
>> I have garden center Anemone blanda tubers I wish to plant in a large container.
>> Daytime temperatures here are still in the 80s F / 27+C.
>> Nights are in the upper 50s F / 13-15C.
>> Should I plant these now, or wait until it's a lot cooler?

I was rhetorically asked
> Curious; what do you think would happen to them? It was 74F/ 23C here yesterday.
> If you had planted them last year they would be in the same temperature situation now.

Funny! Had I planted them last year, they would still be in a container with dry soil, after spending the summer inside the house in a closet.

Of course, I meant: When should I begin watering Anemone blanda tubers that have been stored dry?
Should I put them into soil in a container now, and water now?
Should I put them into soil in a container now, and wait to water until temperatures decrease?
If so, what is a good temperature range to wait for?
Are night temperatures of more concern than day temperatures with regards to deciding when to plant?
Are high day temperatures also a problem with this plant?
Ancient versions of the Sunset Western Garden Guide said these should be soaked overnight before planting. Is this still considered good advice?
