That Ranunculus is a big favourite is no surprise. Its a romantic, delicate and feminine flower that appeals to most people.

The author and gardener Sarah Raven says: "Everyone loves these as cut flowers and they're good in the garden too." 

The flower has whorls of petals that are like tissue-paper and arching long stems. They look best when they are fully opened but they are all right to buy in bud and let them develop in the vase. 

As a cut flower Ranunculus last for about a week, they are not happy in floral foam so should be placed in a vase with plenty of space.

Ranunculus come in a wide variety of colours - pink, red, yellow, orange, white, purple, apricot, even green, as well as multi-coloured and they come as single or double flowers. Flowering season is usually from January till May.
