Growing Calendar for Ranunculus Bulbs - Candy Pink
Delivery: Late March to Late May
Grow this variety in patio pots and cut some of the flowers for that perfect bouquet in the home. Upright stems shoot up to hold its beautiful, pastel-pink flowers.
We give you 25 plump bulbs which you can plant in 2 12in (30cm) diameter pots, 12-13 in each pot in spring. Alternatively grow these bulbs at the front of flower beds spacing the bulbs 4in (10cm) apart so the stems have space to develop as they grow before reveal their beautiful pink flower. Bury the bulbs in soil about 2in (5cm) deep.
Grow in pots with compost suitable for bedding to ensure the plants have the best soil to grow and thrive in. If you grow them in flower beds mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in.
How your plants arrive
Your plants arrive to you as plump little bulbs which, once planted in spring, reveal stems with a many-petalled lovely pink flower on top.
The bulbs arrive in a plastic bag with ventilation holes so that the bulbs get plenty of air. This ensures the bulbs are kept healthy and prevents the bulbs from rotting, which can affect the health of the plant when it’s growing.
Check your 25 bulbs in the mesh bag, and ensure the bulbs are firm, plump and free of mould or bruises.
Can’t plant straight away?
All you need to do is make sure the bulbs are kept in their ventilated bags and kept in a cool, dry place with good air circulation. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
