This time we're talking for an hour about ranunculus cultivation. Because, you know, that's probably what you're doing right now! We cover a lot of ground in this episode, from considerations when ordering corms to pre-sprouting, variety selection, growing in crates(!!), harvesting, storing, and considerations for profitability.

In this show, we mention culture sheets for ranunculus that can help give some guidance for growers trying to dial in their ranunculus program. Here are three for your review:
