    How to Plant

    Soak in room-temperature water for 4-6 hours before planting, and allow a little trickle of water to run into the soaking bowl as they soak in order to increase the oxygen in the water. Plant 5" apart, 1-2" deep, with the 'claws' of the corm pointing down.

    Where to Plant

    Ranunculus like good, well draining soil. Enrich with compost for happy plants.

    When to Plant

    In zones 8 and warmer, plant in the Fall for Spring blooms. If you live in a zone colder than 8, with significant stretches of cold in the Winter, plant in the late Winter/very early Spring instead, about 6 weeks before your last hard frost.

    When to Expect Blooms

    Fall planted corms bloom for about 6-7 weeks in the early Spring, and Spring-planted corms will blossom for about 4-6 weeks beginning in mid-Spring.

    Care Instructions

    Water regularly once the foliage emerges, and pick the flowers regularly (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) to encourage more blooms. And ask us any questions along the way.

    Extra Credit

    If growing as a perennial (zones 8-10), allow the foliage to remain on the plant after blooming, to strengthen it for the following Spring.
