Planting Season

Ranunculus can be planted indoors 12 weeks before your last frost date. Make sure you keep them in a sunny location that remains cooler than 60F in the daytime and between 45 and 50F in the evening.

Blooming Season

Ranunculus blooms from spring to midsummer, depending upon the region in which you live and the variety you're growing. The Asian variety blooms in summer.

Tips

Soak the ranunculus roots in warm water for two to three hours prior to planting. This helps plump them up and get them off to a strong start.
