I soaked them over night, 15 corms.

planted them in a module tray, 12 came up of which I potted them all on.

1 rotted due to being overwatered but I have 11 lovely healthy plants now which will probably cost me somewhere in the region of £30 in the garden centre.

This packet of bulbs cost less than £3 and my time, so its well worth it, I think a lot of the problem with small corms like these is overwatering. 

Best to water a little at first then leave them until growth starts.

Ranunculus need a cooler climate being from the buttercup family, so keep them in cold storage for a little while

My garden isnt small but I like a lot of plants and this one doesnt fit, although I had some lovely oxslips from my plant swapping too

Is it worth potting it up and waiting to see if it flowers?

Hi guys, had this from a friend today but neither of us know what it is. The leaves feel kind of rough if that helps.

I cant seem to post a photo the normal way, I always get an error message

Delphiniums second flush

I cut back when it looks tired, maybe when more than half of the flowers have finished on 1 stalk

What can I plant in a shaded north facing garden?

Is it dry or Damp soil?
