By combining passion, tradition and cutting edge research they have gone on to create ever more beautiful and lasting flowers with worldwide acclaim. For both the Nursery and Cut Flower Industry, these are the best you can get.
Ranunculus are one of the most rewarding spring bulbs to grow and their bountiful display is absolute value for money. These Renaissance selections are the top of the range.
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, they will be faster in warmer weather.
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. For best results should be fertilised well. Regular picking of the flowers can result in even more as it stops the plant producing seed.
