To plant ranunculus tubers soake the tubers in normal water for 30 to 45 min before planting , fill the container about three quarters full of soil. Place the tubers so that they are around 10 inches (25.4 cm) apart from each other and fill the container with soil so that the tubers are covered in about two inches of soil.Water the tubers to settle the soil.
- Remember container plants tend to dry out more easily than plants in the ground, so be mindful of watering over the growing season.
