Ranunculus Corms - 22 corms

Ranunculus Corms - 22 corms

If you've ever wanted to grow your own ranunculus, this is your chance! 

Ranunculus are famous for their beautiful blooms in the spring. Some are so full of petals that they can resemble roses! 

Corms can be saved from year to year and will often multiply so you can add to your collection.

When grown in their preferred growing conditions and planted in Fall to very early Spring they can produce on avg. 5-7 flowers per plant. If planted too late, they will produce less flowers as higher temperatures will induce dormancy.

22 corms in each bag.

Varieties in each mix:  Elegance, Tecolote and Amandine. These are all cut flower varieties with tall stems.

General Growing Conditions:

For a longer period of blooms, sow in Fall or late Winter. They take approximately 90 days to grow and start to flower.

Ranunculus like to grow in cool weather- between mid 40s to low 60s is ideal.

Once temperatures are above high 70s to mid 80s for several days in a row they will likely start to go dormant (these are air temps- soil temperature is actually the more important measurement but air temperature is a suitable approximation). 

Must protect corms from freezing. Plant at 2" deep. Use some form of protection if planting in Fall or very early Spring. Options: Light leaf cover/mulch, frost cloth (eg. Agribon like Ag-19 or higher), a low tunnel with plastic (prepare to vent on sunny/warm days as these will heat up quickly). You can use a combination of all three depending on winter temps and their duration.

When preparing to plant the corms you should soak in cool water for 3-4 hours. Changing the water every hour so or leaving under a continuous drip will help aerate the water while soaking.

You can then plant directly in their final place or do a pre sprout treatment by placing in some barely moist potting soil in a cool, dark location for about 7-10 days to allow roots to start forming. Once you have some roots and perhaps the beginning of shoots you can transfer to their permanent spot. This allows a little more control over the moisture while they start to sprout (too much moisture and they will rot, too little and they won't sprout).

At the end of the season you can leave the plants to yellow naturally and once the leaves have died back you can dig them up and save the corms in a dry location in paper bags. They will be ready to plant again in the Fall.
