Aquilegia - Sweet Rainbows
This is a breeding breakthrough! This is the result of merging a full range of top quality Aquileglas, all selected for form, colour and the best fragrance. It is ideal for adding sweet scentsation to any border.
Sow February to June or September to October on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Do not cover the seed. Keep at a temperature of between 15-20C. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination can take 1-3 months. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 23-30cm apart. For best results, provide any ordinary, well-drained soil in full sun.
