Grow some Per­sian but­ter­cups

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do -

Vi­brant, multi-petalled Ra­nun­cu­lus asi­ati­cus (Per­sian but­ter­cups) are com­pact grow­ers that are ideal for con­tain­ers. Pot up some tu­bers now for an eye-catch­ing dis­play next sum­mer. Plant them in large pots of multi-pur­pose com­post at twice their depth, spaced about 10cm (4in) apart. Leave the pot in a shel­tered spot and keep lightly wa­tered, then give a liq­uid feed in spring as they come into growth. You’ll then en­joy the colour­ful dis­play from June to Au­gust.
