Hi Arch, While I have little local knowledge of the Townsville area, I can say that Ranunculi don’t really like Queensland much. They are more suited to cooler areas. Nonetheless you can grow them with some care and a fair bit of effort. You could sow either seeds or Tubers now. I suggest that you grow them in potting mix in large pots. They like full sun with protection from the wind. Use any complete fertiliser such as Osmocote All Purpose liquid. Some composted cow manure as 1-2cm mulch would be good too. Water 3 times a week. Good luck, Don
