Ranunculus is all the rage right now, and what’s not to love about it? In our zone 6a (and even a few zones colder than us), it can be grown in unheated tunnels, it lasts two weeks in a vase, it works well out of water for design work, and it’s so fluffy and full of petals that fairies could live in it.

Sometimes I feel bad for anemones because I think they get overshadowed by their seasonal partner, even though they last just as long in a vase, and have a look that no other flower does. So I love them too! This year we are pushing how early and late into the season we’ll have these blooms, planting them throughout the season. I’ll run through our process for both crops here.
