Soak the bulbs for a few hours before planting to give your plants a kick-start. Amend the soil with compost and ensure good drainage. As a general rule, bulbs should be planted at a depth of around twice the height of the bulb. The ‘claws’ of the Ranunculus bulbs should be facing down when planting. Water well after planting.
Water well during dry periods. Dead head regularly to encourage more flowers to bloom.
