I do love ranunculus with their tissue-paper flowers in gorgeous colours. This year I bought orange, purple, pink and white corms. I’m planting up half now and half in the spring so I can get a double delight. I will grow them mainly in pots of single colours but I might also channel my inner Sarah Raven and plant up a pot or two with an orange and purple combo. Soaking the corms before planting gets them off to a better start. I’ll plant them 3 to a 1 litre pot in a mix of 2 parts John Innes No 2, 2 parts multipurpose compost and 1 part sharp grit. They will stay in the greenhouse overwinter.
