Ranunculus

I love the pretty flower.
It is said that bigger the corm, gigger plant and more flowers to a plant. The corms are commercially divided in to small, medium and large sizes.
I have never been able to grow corms successfully so I purchase seedlings every year for my satisfaction. I have found that they do better in the beds then the pots.
I have decided to keep my corms and seeds for next year crop.
Please guide me, how to preserve the corms, when and how to plant them.
Looking forward to your comments

From the corm germination photos it appears it was poor, one large planter has only one and the other just three, Imran, what was the success ratio?

success ratio of growing corm is about 60 to 70 percent. many of them got rotted and not germinated. this time i will use this Pre-sprouting method
