Planting instructions

In autumn, plant the tuberous roots with the ‘claws’ facing downwards and keep moist at root level.

Maintenance

Ranunculus bulbs can be left in the ground for the following season, but it is not really worth keeping them, as they grow easily from seed.
They require little attention after planting except for regular deep watering and cutting off old flower-heads to keep plants flowering.
Keep the soil cool with a mulch.
