Greenhouse ranunculus - as early as January

Garden ranunculus is in season in summer

After the main season of cut ranunculus is over, the season of garden ranunculus begins. The flowers open around mid-May. They can be viewed for several weeks. Usually the flowers have faded towards the end of July.

Extend the flowering season

You can extend the flowering season of ranunculus in your garden with a few simple tricks:

  • Clean off dead flowers immediately
  • fertilize regularly (intervals of 1 week)
  • water abundantly to keep the soil moist
  • Potted plants: put in the shade

Once the flowering season is over, gradually reduce the amount of fertilizer. Pouring can also be omitted once. So that the tuber can prepare for winter, the soil should now sometimes be dry. When the old stems and leaves have yellowed, they can be removed.


Onion season is early spring. Then they can be freshly planted.
