Ranunculus Rising27th January 2013 • In The Greenhouse • Stephanie Donaldson
The ranunculus that I planted in pots at the end of November are on the move despite the cold and the poor light levels. The good thing about growing them slowly, rather than in heat, is that they will be sturdier plants than those that will be on sale at garden centres in a couple of months time. Too often they have been forced and not properly hardened off and have a tendency to collapse rather than fulfil their promise. The pots with no sign of life are anemones that are biding their time and will put in an appearance when they are good and ready.
