Ranunculus seed can be sown from October - February in moist seed starting mix, in containers you leave outdoors in a protected area. The cool, moist conditions should trigger sprouting in the spring. Or you can sow from March - September if you give them a cold treatment. Sow seeds individually in pots filled with moist seed starting mix (sow 1/16 of an inch deep). Place the pots into plastic bags and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. Remove the plastic bags and sink the pots to their rims in soil, in a shady part of the garden. The seeds may sprout, or they may remain dormant until next spring, depending upon their maturity and because of their required resting period.
