    i'd like the answer to this aswell, mine are in the ground and not sure whether to dig them up or leave them, i'm in the south east.

    also when do i take the seed, i know it has to be 'fresh'  but i keep rubbing the seed head and none are coming off yet, how long does it take to come off & still be 'fresh?

    Thanks dove, they are so pretty but don't seem very popular, I had no luck with them last year but ok so far this, just want to continue doing ok!

  • I just leave my ranunculus in the ground (in the South West) and they have come up bigger  and bushierevery year (we have been lucky with a couple of mild winters though so this may have been a factor in their success)

    thank you karen i'll just leave them in then as it's pretty mild in south east too.

    I do want to grow more from seed though so if any one knows when i shhould collect the seeds i'd be grateful.

    They are reasonably hardy. I never lift them and they grow all the time. Bit like Tulips, if they like where they are they come back every year, if not they are cheap annuals.

    Mine are flowering really well at the moment. But they don't flower for a very long period, but they seem hardy.

    Haven' t planted out new ones yet but yesterday took the one bought in flower from TC which I've had in a pot and planted in front garden right at the front with a good handful of grit, fingers crossed now!
