Please Note: Due to pre existing Quarantine laws we cannot send any bulbs to Western Australia and Tasmania. You may need to find bulb suppliers in your areas. Sorry we cant help you. 

These Garden Ranunculus are a blend of all colours with both single and double blooms. 
The colour range includes yellow, red, white, pink and orange.

The exuberant, colourful blooms of Ranunculus are first class and simple to grow.

Ranunculus are one of the most rewarding spring bulbs to grow and their abundant display is absolute value for money.

Ranunculus blooms will bring you an average of six weeks of colour. When cut, Ranunculus flowers will last over a week in a vase. As you are probably guessing, we really can`t sing their praises loudly enough!

Plant the Octopus-like Ranunculus tubers in autumn, feed well and by the time spring rolls around you will be taken aback with the beauty of these blooms. Ranunculus take around 10-12 weeks from planting to bloom.

Plant Ranunculus into a humus rich, well drained soil. Water to establish and keep moist during active growth. They grow best in a full sun, to light shade position. Make sure you plant with the 'claws' facing down! 

Because Ranunculus tubers are so small, and they produce so many flowers, you need to fertilise them well, so they can perform at their best. Feed them like you would a teenage boy, plenty and often!

Soil
For best results, the soil must be well drained and rich to at least 30cm.

Watering
During germination and early growth, always keep soil slightly moist. Drying out at this stage is a common cause of failure. Stop watering once foliage yellows.

Fertilising
Very heavy feeders especially the Picasso because they have little of their own reserves and produce many flowers. So work in lots of fertiliser prior to planting and also top dress or liquid feed regularly during flowering. A complete fertiliser is appropriate.

Flowering time
Depends on planting. Generally from mid to late Spring.

After flowering care
Leave the bulbs undisturbed. You can remove the foliage once it has died back. These bulbs naturally degenerate over a number of years and need replacing every 2nd or 3rd year.

Comments
If lifting, first loosen the soil with a fork, then pull out by the stalks, tie up and dry in a cool spot. Then cut stalks off and store the bulbs in an open box or net bag.

Climate
Subtropical to Cool
