Growing Ranunculus ‘Maroon’: 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.
