    Hi All

    Can anyone tell me if it's too late to plant ranunculus bulbs? I've seen some lovely ones online but I don't know whether the optimum time to plant them is autumn? I want them to flower this summer. There does seem to be conflicting advice online. TIA :)

    No I wouldn't say to late, they can be planted late winter / early spring or autumn. I planted mine a few weeks ago, your will just flower a little bit later.

      Hi Fern, Ranunculus are one of the biulbs you can plant all year round to get flowers at any time.
