Golden blooms with plenty of petals. A great treat for an abundance of spring colour that won’t break the bank.
A dwarf form of Ranunculus exclusive to Tesselaar. These fabulous blooms are colourful and compact with a high percentage of double flowers. Perfect for smaller gardens or potted plantings. Like all Ranunculus, they are best planted en masse.
Ranunculus are one of the most rewarding spring bulbs to grow and their bountiful display is absolute value for money.
Ranunculus blooms will bring you an average of six weeks of colour. When cut, Ranunculus flowers will last over a week in a vase. We really can`t sing their praises loudly enough!
Plant the Octopus like Ranunculus tubers in autumn, feed well and by the time spring rolls around you will be taken aback with the beauty of these blooms. Ranunculus take around 10-12 weeks from planting to bloom.
Plant Ranunculus into a humus rich, well drained soil. Water to establish and keep moist during active growth. They grow best in a full sun to light shade position.
Because Ranunculus tubers are so small and they produce so many flowers you need to fertilise them well so they can perform at their best. Feed them like you would a teenage boy, plenty and often!
