Also known as the ‘Persian Buttercup’, Ranunculus ‘Yellow’ offers the same cheerful warmth as those radiant wildflowers with the bonus of huge blooms, innumerable petals, and maximum impact. Yellow flowers spread sunshine even when skies are grey, and are further brought to life when the sun does appear, reflecting the light to bathe your garden in a golden glow. With tightly packed layers of lemon-coloured petals, this Ranunculus brings fresh zest to containers and the front of borders. Instantly brighten your home by snipping a few stems to savour indoors – the brilliant blooms can last for over a week as cut flowers.
Best planted under glass or in a polytunnel in autumn, for overwintering and blooming the following spring. Can also be started off outdoors in spring.
Soak the spider-like tubers in water for several hours prior to planting.
Plant tubers 7-10cm deep, spaced 15cm apart into well-drained, fertile soil.
For container grown plants, a mix of good quality multi-purpose compost and grit is ideal.
Provide consistent watering, ensuring soil remains moderately damp at all times. Ranunculus are susceptible to mildew if they are allowed to dry out, or rot if they are kept too wet.
Grow in a position in full sun and feed with high-potash fertiliser weekly when buds start to appear. Pick regularly as wonderful cut flowers.
