They say I can't grow ranunculus...

Pin It

They say I can't grow ranunculus...I say bah-humbug.

My love affair with these bourgaise roses began in a Lincoln nursery. I saw a gorgous flower in bloom and even gathered up the courage to ask what it was. I went home and researched till my eyes hurt and then did nothing. Until now...two years later and a move into zone 6 and I decided to give it a go. I've got a few more gardening skills up my sleeve and no real garden to speak of, so my focued energy goes into the 20-some pots I've got growing.

They (the wise, experienced, bah-hubug gardeners) say that it will be worthless to try to grow them here because it will be too hot, but I'm going to try. I'm going to give the little guys expensive miracle grow cactus soil that drains well and watch them like a hawk so they get the requisite full sun, but not too hot temps...maybe an outdoor air conditioner for them? No, that's a bit too far, but you wait and see...I WILL get a ranunculus bloom this year...me and my spade...
