Ranunculus – Ice Cream Dip

When we first laid eyes on this unique ranunculus variety, we instantly knew we had to give it a try. The delicate petals with their tinted hues resemble swirls of soft ice cream adorned with a sweet and colorful dip coating. This delightful display of color on the edges of the petals is commonly referred to as the “picotee” effect. Ranunculus not only exhibit this charming characteristic but many other flower species like lisianthus, cosmos, and amaryllis can also display this beautiful color effect.

The Ice Cream Dip Ranunculus flowers are unique and diverse, ensuring that no two plants are alike. Some flowers may appear predominantly white, while others showcase a gentle blush of soft pink. This delightful variation makes these flowers ideal for various types of floral arrangements. When planted together in your garden, the different shades of color create an organic and harmonious feeling.

Growing Ranunculus ‘Ice cream dip’: Everything You Need to Know

When to Start?

  • Autumn Planting: Suitable for areas with mild winters.
    • In mild winter regions, pre-sprout and directly plant in the garden.
    • In colder regions like The Netherlands, plant in pots and trays and plant out under cover.
    • Protect with horticultural fleece if below -6°C.
  • Late Winter Planting: Ideal for cold, wet climates.
    • Start in January or February using seed trays or P9 pots in a frost-free environment.
    • Once germinated, move them to the light. For example in a greenhouse, under a cold frame, or in a transparent box
    • By mid-March, as weather permits, transfer outdoors for May or June blooming.

If you are growing your ranunculus for the first time, I highly recommend planting half in the autumn and the rest later (if your weather permits)

Planting Tips:

  • Spacing: Keep corms 20-25 cm apart. In flower beds, fit 4 plants in a 75 cm width. Avoid overcrowding pots. As a rule of thumb: one plant per 5 to 7 liter of compost
  • Preparation: Soak dry corms in water for 6 hours to help them expand. Caution: longer soaking risks deterioration.
  • Soil: Use potting soil mixed with perlite for better drainage. Plant with corm “octopus legs” facing down.
  • Storage: After planting in pots or trays, store them in a 10°C to 15°C room. Once sprouts appear, typically in 2 weeks, shift them to a brighter location, preferably in a greenhouse or under a cold frame.
  • Transplanting: When they outgrow their initial pot or tray, move them to larger containers or the garden, ensuring good soil drainage.

Protection & Care:

  • Cold Weather: If temperatures plunge below -8°C, protect your plants with fleece. Ranunculus foliage, dense with water, is vulnerable to frost.
  • Flower Damage: Flowers aren’t frost-resistant. If frozen, trim them, and the plant will focus on new growth.

Harvesting Ranunculus Flowers and bulbs:

  • Wait until the blooms feel soft and bouncy. They’ll further open in vases and can stay fresh for up to 10 days with regular water changes.
  • Save the corms or bulbs for next season by pulling the wilted plants. If you are gardening on sandy soil you can leave them in the ground. They will return in autumn.
