More Details

Ranuculus are famously tricky to grow, blighted by mildew from early in the year, but this new Butterfly breeding gives strength, productivity, health and vigour. We loved these almost miniature magnolias growing in the garden and picked them all through May.

Variety Ariadne
Type Tender Perennial
Common Name Persian Buttercup
Border Position Container Garden, Cutting Garden
Bulb Size 3/5

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant the small, unusual tubers known as claws 5cm (2in) deep and 10cm (4in) apart, 'eyes' up and claws facing down. Grow in a sheltered position and protect from strong and cold winds.
Care Tips Plant them straight away into a larger pot to grow-on in a glasshouse until the danger of frost has passed or grow in the ground, sheltered with a cloche or fleece. This method of overwintering them in a greenhouse or cold frame and bringing them out in spring is easiest, although good ventilation is required. They can be planted directly into the ground in warmer areas of the country, but we would advise using a cloche for overnight protection.
