Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
This rare, choice species features delicate, nodding, chocolate-brown, 1.5cm (½in) blooms from late spring onwards. The neatly compact plants are perfect for borders and rockeries. A collector's item. Height: 30-35cm (12-14 inches).


1 packet (15 aquilegia seeds) (24203)

Sow February to June or September to October. Sow on the surface of a good free draining, damp, seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 15-20C (59-68F). Germination can take 1-3 months. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.

Overwinter September sowings in a coldframe and plant out the following spring.

Caution: Irritant to skin and eyes. Harmful if eaten.
