Plant Events from our members
dnrevel On April 15, 2023 Potted up
Sprouted tubers potted up.

THIS time I've got rooted tubers, (in the cool garage for 2 weeks). We have a couple weeks of cold to grow them on for a bit. Maybe I'll get a few buds, maybe I won't, but it's worth a go!
dnrevel On March 31, 2023 Seeds sown
Put in water with bubbler for 4 hours, planted in soil in trays in greenhouse. Will endeavor to keep tubers (corms) cool, around 45 degrees.
dnrevel On March 30, 2023 Obtained plant
Ordered a new batch of corms for 2023 as the 2021 experiment growing ranunculus didn't work. These are classic Ranunculus buttercup bulbs from Willard and May, Minnesota, bought on Amazon
dnrevel On April 5, 2021 Potted up
Potted up, two pots, placed in larger cold frame.
dnrevel On April 1, 2021 Seeds germinated
Sprouts showing.
dnrevel On March 17, 2021 Seeds sown
Soaked the corms for several hours, changing the water 3-4 times. Planted in a planter box, keeping in the garage until the feeder roots emerge. Keeping moist.
