Ok… I lied a little yesterday…. it’s not too early to plant indoors….
January to March are always the hardest time of the year for me. I spend so much time thinking about playing in my gardens, and there’s NOTHING I can do but dream.
I have to find other ways to channel my urge to grow, and the other week, the grocery store offered up a solution.
They had several little “grow” boxes of different plants – Cala lilies, Mums, and a few others. Including Ranunculuses.
Ranunculus, also known as Persian Buttercup, is a gorgeous little flower. They can’t overwinter outside here, but they are supposed to do well in pots. I tried once before but didn’t have any luck. The boxes were only a few dollars, so I figured it was worth another try.
They had a few colours, but I picked this pretty apricot. I followed all the directions, and it’s sitting under my grow light now. Here’s hoping I see a sprout or two in a few weeks.
