Some dramatic colour to splash about the garden! Come spring you will be in awe of these blooms.
They are so bountiful; one tuber will provide a generous display in a 10-20cm pot. Dwarf Maché Ranunculus are a popular choice as they have compact stems and bold colours.
These are hand pollinated, F2 hybrids. You are guaranteed fully double, uniform flowers in solid colours. The perfectly compact, well branched foliage provides a lush base for the abundant blooms for up to six weeks, with plenty for picking.
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 the blooms. Ranunculus take around 10-12 weeks from planting to flower.
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!
