Aquilegia - Lime Sorbet

Lime Sorbet is a hardy perennial which produces elegant, early blooms. The flowers are spurless, double pompons in a soft, fresh, lime green to white colour.

Sow indoors for surest results, from February to June, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-42 days. Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm pots. Always hold seedlings by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, June-October, 30cm apart. Or, sow outdoors, April-June, in a seed bed, 0.5cm deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers from May to July, the following year.
