These were getting ready for a party last week ... not a great pic I admit BUT :
Right.... I have just planted 100 Ranunculus Picotee Pink having soaked them for 24 hours. Developing from dry claw like things yesterday and growing to slimey baby oysterish like things today. Oysters, I feel I should add here, are not my favourite food. BUT hopefully these wee things will turn into beautiful pink and white blobs that will look just fab in a vase. Last time I did Ranunculus NOT ONE came up. SO this time I am being a bit more organised and have put most of them in flower pots so I can really watch what is going on! Some have gone in the ground too, so a compare and contrast sesh can take place in the event that any come up.
