I fell in love with this very pretty pink colour of Ranunculus which I grew in my mainly pale coloured nectar garden this spring.
Everyone loves ranunculus as cut flowers and they’re wonderful in the garden too. They grow well from an autumn planting and happily survive the winter in my garden with a two inch mulch of compost.
|Soil Type:||Very well drained soil||Site:||Full sun||Height:||35cm||Spacing:||Plant them with the claws downwards about 5cm deep and 10-15cm apart.||Hardiness:||Semi-hardy||Care tips:||They dislike cold and damp so plant in free draining soil and mulch well with a 5cm covering of mushroom compost in the Winter.||Flowers:||❀ May - July||For the vase:||Carefully strip all but the top leaves of these plants as they quickly go slimy on contact with water. The flowers will last up to two weeks in clean water.|
