PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|A member of the buttercup family, this lovely wild-flower produces globe-shaped pale to mid-yellow flowers, appearing above attractive foliage. Valuable for colour in spring gardens, particularly in light shade, where they glow beautifully. They also make a good cut flower.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|The seeds of this plant are usually very slow to germinate. Sow thinly in a small pot on the surface of good quality, moist but well-drained compost, barely covering with a little fine vermiculite or sifted compost - light is needed to aid germination. Aim to maintain a temperature of 55-60F (13-15C). If no seedlings have developed after 12 weeks, place pot in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge for a month or so, then bring back into light and warmth. Do not discard the pot, as seedlings may take many months to appear! When large enough, transplant seedlings into individual pots and grow on until the following spring, when they can be planted out.|
