Plant a flower day

Today is National Plant a Flower Day 2016 so lets get planting.

Ranunculus planter

Ranunculus or Persian Buttercup
A spring flowering bulb which makes a gorgeous splash of clashing colour.
They prefer a sunny position and do not tolerate heavy frost. I planted mine in a container so I can move them easily depending on the weather.
Ranunculus make lovely cut flowers but keep away from pets as the flowers are poisonous.
