Planting Bulbs

I was given a packet of ranunculus and windflower bulbs. Based on what I have read, it is too late to plant them. How can I store them until it is time to plant them next spring?

Packing them in cardboard boxes (see article) and storing them in the garage should be okay, provided the area doesn't get too warm. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/bgen/preparing-bulbs-for-winter-how-to-store-bulbs-for-winter.htm

Growing Ranunculus

I purchased a blooming ranunculus plant at a big box store. It had no info with it and all I could find online was info concerning the tubers. Should I plant it in the ground in the sun or would it do better in a container? Will it survive our hot, humid summer? It’s a beautiful healthy-looking plant.

I agree, Ranunculus are beautiful!
You can plant it directly into the ground after all chance of frost, or leave in pots.
Bulbs will not winter over and will need to be dug back up in the fall.

Here is a few articles about the care of your plant and the bulbs.

Ranunculus Care, Full Sun and Original Pot but Wilting a Day After Bought

I purchased a small ranunculus plant 2 days , it has a large by colored single flower on a stem roughly 4 inches tall. The leaves are almost like parsley leaves. I have read how to care for it ,I put it in a spot where it got full sun and my other plants thrive. The day after I brought it home , I noticed it wilted a bit ,the leaves no longer strong and the petals went slack and dropped. I didn\\\’t remove it from it\\\’s original pot from the home depot where I bought it. What is wrong?

Was this in the store, or outside in the sun? Sometimes plants take a little while to get used to their new environment. If they have been inside, then it is best to put them out in the sun a few hours at a time so that it is not too much on them at once. Make sure that it stays watered and doesn't get subjected to the cold. They will die when the weather drops below 28 degrees.
