Plant bulbs with the "claw" facing down 1 to 2 inches deep and space each tuber 8 to 12 inches apart. Unless ideal soil conditions can be met, tubers should be dug up and stored until the next season.
Interesting Facts: Ranunculus is said to contain medicinal properties to treat blisters, bronchitis, skin conditions and rheumatism.
