Description

Rich, feathered and exotic, this was my favourite in our ranunculus trial last spring. We discovered a great thing for growing all our ranunculus, some inside, some out, an organic weekly treatment of bicarb, liquid soap and a drop of sunflower oil all mixed in water and it kept them 100% mildew and bug free. (see web for exact recipe).

Care Tips

Soak the claws for 12 hours prior to planting. Plant into pots to grow-on in a glasshouse until the danger of frost has passed. In warmer areas they can be planted directly in the ground, but we would advise using a cloche for overnight protection.
