A cottage garden favourite, Aquilegia seeds come in a fine colour range producing a beautiful flower year after year.
This hardy perennial needs to be sown between March and June indoors in a cold frame for flowering between May and June the following year.
Aquilegia seeds should take around 30 to 90 days to germinate, in which time they should be covered in a polythene sheet. After germination the seedlings can be transplanted into trays and plants 5cm apart. When large enough, the plants can be transplanted outside at least 38cm apart in a sunny or partially shaded area. (May also be sown directly outdoors between April to June.)
