    How to Plant Tecolote Mix Ranunculus

    When to Plant Ranunculus

    Ranunculus does best in regions with mild winters and long, cool springs. Fall is the ideal planting time in such areas. Those with colder winters can plant in late winter–early spring, once the threat of hard frosts is over. Ranunculus can grow well in zones 3–10 but you must lift in zones 3-7.

    Since planting Ranunculus corms (or bulbs) in the Fall is only advisable for Zones 8 - 10, they are one of the rare varieties that can be stored until spring (if purchased in the fall). We recommend that they are stored in a cool, dry, place until you're ready to plant in early Spring. Store tubers in dry moss, such as peat, in a mesh bag. Mesh onion bags are a great storing option for any bulb or tuber. After the cold season is over, start Ranunculus tubers indoors in February and plant outside when the soil is warm and workable. In temperate zones, you can plant them directly into garden beds by mid-April to May for blooms in June or July.

    Where to Plant Ranunculus

    If growing in containers, select a container that’s large enough to accommodate the full-grown plant, and has adequate drainage holes to prevent waterlogging. The use of a hoop house or low tunnel is recommended. Choose a spot for your container that receives full sun for at least 6 hours a day. When the danger of a hard frost has passed, place the container in a spot where it will receive full sun all day.

    How to Plant Ranunculus

    Before planting, soak your bulbs for a few hours in lukewarm water.

    Choose well-draining soil with full sun exposure, and dig holes that allow you to plant the Ranunculus 1-2 inch deep, and 4-6 inch apart. Make sure that the "pointed" ends of the corm is facing downward.

    After planting, gently soak the soil. Roots will form in the autumn. Buds and flowers are produced in the spring.

    How to Care for Ranunculus

    Leave the foliage in place once blooming has ended for the season, be sure not to cut it off. The leaves will continue to gather sunlight and strengthen the bulbs for future seasons.

    Leaves will yellow and die back as the plant goes dormant. Foliage may be removed at this point.

    Ranunculus planted in fall start to bloom early in the spring season, flowering continuously for a period of 6–7 weeks. Corms planted in late winter begin to flower by mid-spring and usually remain in bloom for 4–6 weeks.
