Ranunculus “Persian Buttercup” have opulent rose-like flowers. The fully double flowers of the Ranunculus bulbs make excellent cut flowers. These perennial bulbs are perfect for the border or containers. 

You can plant them straight into your soil and providing the growing conditions are good they will flourish. However there are a few steps that will improve the performance of these strange claw-like corms.

How to Plant Ranunculus Corms

  • To start off your ranunculus bulbs soak them in water for a few hours. This will give the corms a boost and they will begin to grow a little quicker. 
  • Plant them in a tray and keep them moist. You can cover over the top until shoots appear.
  • Once you have foliage you can plant them into pots and keep in a cold frame or plant them in your garden.  
  • Plant Ranunculus Corms in a sun-drenched location, allowing the vibrant blooms to soak in the summer sunshine. Full sun ensures these corms unfurl their full potential in a spectacular display.
  • Gently place the corms in the soil, burying them at a depth of about 5 cm with the claw-like side facing down. Choose well-drained soil to provide a nurturing environment for these floral wonders.
  • Ranunculus thrives in well-draining soil enriched with organic matter. 
  • Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season, especially as the buds and blooms emerge. Adequate hydration is the key to the continuous flowering of Ranunculus.

How to Care for Ranunuculus Corms

  • Treat your Ranunculus to a balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-4 weeks during the growing season. 
  • Allow the foliage to wither naturally after the flowering period. This process allows the corms to store energy for the next growing season. Resist the urge to remove foliage prematurely.
  • Usually the foliage begins to yellow once the the flowers are in bloom. 


Can Ranunculus Corms be grown in containers?

Absolutely! Explore the versatility of Ranunculus in containers for a portable display of summer elegance. Pot them in well-draining soil and witness the vibrant blooms in a potted paradise.

When is the best time to plant Ranunculus Corms?

Plant these corms in the spring for a summer spectacle. Or start them in autumn in a cold frame

Do Ranunculus Corms need full sunlight?

Yes, Ranunculus thrives in full sun. Choose a location that receives ample sunlight for a breathtaking display of radiant blooms.

How often should I water Ranunculus Corms?

Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season, especially as the buds and blooms emerge. Adjust the frequency based on environmental conditions and the specific needs of your Ranunculus.
