(3 customer reviews)

Unbeleivable blooms well worth waiting for

Columbines or Aquilegias are truly special flowers well worth waiting for. Their unusual flower form will make you stop and stare! Although your plants may take up to 2 years to flower, they tend to self-seed, making them a useful addition to low-maintenance gardens with a wildflower look. No wonder they've been a gardening favourite for centuries. They like richly organic, well-drained soils and light shade, and are at their best in informal gardens.

How to Sow

Columbines take a while to germinate, so be patient! Fool the seeds into thinking there’s been a chilly winter by refrigerating them for three or four weeks before sowing. Sow them quite shallowly and keep moist. A very light layer of mulch will help.

    I haven’t been able to plant these yet as I have been in the transition of moving house. But I cannot wait to plant them and watch them grow into a beautiful plant
